Conference 2011: Keele

Keele Hall

ITTE Annual International Conference 2011, Keele University 

Back to the Future?

“Back to the Future?: where are we going with ICT and ITE?”

 Tuesday 5th – Thursday 7th July 2011.

The Theme:

Given the government agenda on Initial Teacher Education (ITE) and the apparent threat to Information and Communication Technology (ICT) as a subject on the revised English National Curriculum, we entitled this Annual Conference ‘Back to the Future?’; subtitled, ‘where are we going with ICT and ITE?’   This was an exciting opportunity to hear experts’ views and to discuss the opportunities for and challenges to ICT/Computing/Technologies in Education and Initial Teacher Education more widely.

The programme included key note speakers who are national and international experts in ITE and ICT/Computing, workshops on technologies in education, papers and posters on ITE and Technologies and discussion groups on a range of topics around the future of ITE and ICT/Computing in Education: it provided participants with a stimulating three days of debate, discussion, socialising and networking.

Speakers included:

Professor Stephen Heppell – world renowned expert on technologies in education;

Tim Tarrant, – retired Head of the ICT team at the Teaching and Development Agency (TDA);

Kevin Mattinson – Pro Vice-Chancellor (Community and Partnerships) and Head of Education at Keele University.

A selection of resources and presentations from the conference are now available online to members.
