Wednesday December 1 - ICT Bus Tour 

(You need to register through the Conference Registration website on http://www.vitta.org.au/conferenceinfo/registration-2 ) 

Places are filling fast but there are still some seats available. 
One of our stops on the Bus Tour is to be at The National Sports Museum , located at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, which is home to Australia's finest collection of sporting heritage. We will explore selected parts of the museum and see how the latest state-of-the-art technology is used to make seamless museum visitation experiences: Highlights will include the triple projector Tribal Wars, the James Hird and Shane Warne hologram experiences, directional sound projection and touch screen technology. Learn about the use of unseen technologies, the art of problem solving in creating one-off products for museums and how this leads to invention and innovation. Experience the interactive bodies-in zone where technology and play equipment combine to give some excellent sporting experiences in football, netball, soccer, cricket, archery, cycling and the use of a reaction timer. This is just a sample of what is to be experienced on the ICT Bus Tour. 

This is a full day FREE event with an intended sponsored lunch and refreshments . This professional learning provides an insight into the exciting ways in which ICT is shaping our contemporary world and is relevant for primary and secondary teachers.
