Don't miss the most important ICT in Education Event on the school calendar!


VITTA is proud to present Leading and Learning from the Edge - VITTA Annual
Conference & Expo 2011 


The VITTA Conference has the biggest range of presentations in ICT in
education for primary and secondary schools - 120 presentations with eight
concurrent workshops.  VITTA is a not for profit organisation that does not
have the overheads of conferences run by commercial organisations so we have
the greatest range of presentations for leaders and teachers.


Major pathways for the Conference this year are:

*	Leadership
*	Learning management
*	Digital citizenship (including cybersafety)
*	IT electives and senior VCE IT
*	Mobile learning - especially iPads

Keynote Speakers include:

Roger Larsen (Founder of Europe's largest commercial open source learning

Mark Pesce (ABC's The New Inventors Panelist, Educator, Entrepreneur,

Nathan Bailey (eEducation Centre, Monash University)

Suelette Dreyfus (Melbourne University)

Come and hear the latest research from one of our Keynote Speakers, Nathan
Bailey, on the comparisons between pen based technology to finger based
technology and how they affect learning.

Other highlights include:

.         International video link with Stephen Heppell and Yong Zhao (two
of the world's leading thinking on the use of ICT in education) talking with
Gerry White and Roger Larson from Norway at the VITTA Conference.

.         200 Iconias available for delegates.  Come and roadtest the Iconia
as a comparison with other tablets/slates!

.         Entry to the VITTA Expo with fifty vendors prepared to support you
in 2012.  Lots of prizes given away in the Happy Hour at the end of each

.         Our ticket includes entry to our cocktail party on the Monday
night that has a few surprises! 

.         One day conference for technical support staff - an essential for
the latest in integration of ICT.

The range and diversity of sessions is vast, and lights up the spectrum of
digital learning. Leading and Learning from the Edge is designed for all
learners. It explores the exciting environments and the opportunities for
students and teachers to enhance their learning through technology. Leading
and Learning from the Edge highlights the innovation, creativity and
achievement of teachers and students nationally in and beyond the classroom.
