Australian teachers are facing complex challenges, including the adoption of new technologies into the classroom, the development of students’ 21st Century skills, the inclusion of diverse learners, the changing nature of literacy, and the wellbeing of their students and colleagues.
“For the 450,000 teachers across the country, professional development is a critical factor in the ability to make a difference in the lives of students, while ushering them into the classroom of the future,” commented Ms Marie Kinsella, CEO, International Exhibition & Conference Group.
With a confirmed list of over 100 exhibiting companies, the National Education Summit will present educators with the latest in education research, information, technology and skills. “Noting that our teachers play such an important foundational role in the country’s social and economic growth, this Summit offers a comprehensive programme that speaks to the complexity of the work that our teachers do, and presents them with the latest techniques and practices,” added Ms Kinsella.
Comprehensive, interactive and inspiring
The National Education Summit offers guests a line-up of six individual conferences, presented by over 80 leading educational specialists. Each conference is focused on a key pillar, including STEM, Diverse Learners, Wellbeing, Literacy and Libraries, as well as the Classroom of the Future. Alongside the conferences, The Education Show (a free trade expo) brings together over 100 exhibitors, showcasing the latest educational resources, products, technologies, programs and tools.
Attending principals and teachers will benefit from the exciting seminars and interactive panel discussions, as well as face-to-face networking opportunities that complement the Summit. “Registration has free and paid options, making this Summit accessible for all schools,” said Ms Kinsella. “In addition, attending teachers will earn CPD points mapped to the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers, on the time they spend at the Summit.”
