VITTA 2006: ICT: Imagination Creativity & Thinking


Flemington Racecourse

November 20-22

In 2006 VITTA will again invite ICT Educators from primary and secondary 
schools, tertiary institutions, sector authorities, business and industry 
to take part in our Annual Conference. 

Held over three-days in late November, the conference program is designed 
to give attendees an opportunity to see a variety of presentations and 
demonstrations incorporating best practice teaching and learning.

The theme of this year's VITTA conference is, "ICT: Imagination, 
Creativity & Thinking". The theme reflects the changing nature of ICT 
within the school from a stand-alone subject to an integral aspect of all 
learning experiences, with the emphasis on creative thinking, applicable 
across all key learning areas. We plan to showcase new technologies and 
how to implement these in the classroom. 

Sessions will range from specific content-based sessions, through to 
hardware or software specific sessions, offering delegates a selection of 
different options at each session time.

The conference is a three-day event offering a full program for each day, 
and each day having a specific focus. Day 1 has a greater focus on 
Secondary Issues; Day 2 focuses on Primary Issues; and Day 3 on both 
Technical Issues and a Principal stream. Many delegates will attend all 3 
days of the conference. 

About VITTA: The Victorian Information Technology Teachers Association 
(VITTA) is a not-for-profit organisation which provides services to
