Australian Computers in Education Conference - ACEC2004
The next national biennial conference of the Australian Council for Computers in Education will be held in Adelaide from Tuesday 6th July to Thursday 8th July 2004, with pre-conference workshops, tours and welcoming cocktail party on Monday 5th July.
ACEC2004 is subtitled “Research,… Reform,.. Realise the Potential!” It will focus on: research about education and Information and Communications Technology (ICT) use; the reforming processes in education that result from ICT applications and access; and the opportunities that are provided to students, teachers and schools by current and emerging technologies.
Research is the basis for the informed decisions made by schools, school systems and teacher education institutions regarding the use of ICT in education. More effective use and improved outcomes are dependent on an increased understanding of the factors that contribute to student and teacher development. ACEC2004 represents an opportunity for researchers to present their findings and play a role in the continued evolution of ICT use in education.
Reform of school education is a constant theme for many advocates of ICT use in education. Experience and expertise in achieving desirable reform is accumulating and ACEC2004 provides an occasion to explore the possible and practical aspects of school change facilitated through ICT.
In order to realise the potential of ICT in schooling, professional educators need opportunities to communicate with their peers, gather the available evidence, investigate options and determine the implications for their own practice…ACEC2004 will support all of that in a highly convivial atmosphere.
ACEC2004 is hosted by the Computer in Education Group of South Australia, CEGSA, on behalf of the Australian Council for Computers in Education. CEGSA is supported in this venture by the School Library Association of South Australia.
ACCE is affiliated with the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) and the Technology Education Federation of Australia (TEFA).
