Hi Lorraine,

I wonder if you might be interested in presenting at the VITTA
conference on the use of ICT in the design and technology curriculum?
Perhaps you know teachers doing innovative embracing ICT in the context
of VELS? Could you help me spread the word about our call for papers?

The Call for Papers is open until July 15.
