​​ The role of technology in education is becoming more and more prominent and, when used wisely and purposefully, there is no doubt that it can help to motivate students, thus encouraging them to cultivate a positive attitude towards learning.

Keynote speakers at the event will include Stephen Reid, a Games based learning pioneer, Pamela Ronan, a teacher in Limerick Educate Together School and Stephen Howell from Microsoft Ireland.  A range of informative and interesting workshops will take place throughout the day led by teachers and students who are successfully using technology to enhance teaching and learning.

Pamela O’Brien, lecturer at LIT Thurles and organiser of the conference said,

“The beauty of this conference is the fact that it has a strong interactive emphasis thus providing a valuable forum for discussion among teachers regarding their attitudes to technology and its practical applications in the classroom”,
“This event will be of interest to primary and secondary school teachers, whether a reluctant or confident user of technology in everyday teaching and learning”.
