In June I gave a keynote at the annual EdTech conference, organised by the Irish Learning Technology Association (ILTA). The event’s theme was “Digital Literacies for Life.”
This was a really well-run event, and I was impressed over and over by the forward-thinking attendees. I really enjoyed talks by Doug Belshaw and the team of Lesley Gourlay & Martin Oliver. I learned about using ePortfolios, creating mobile apps with students, using wikis and virtual worlds and many other innovative teaching techniques.
I’ve shared my slides below as I’ve gotten a few requests for them. My thanks to the ILTA committee for inviting me and for putting together such an interesting and energetic conference. I’m looking forward to using a lot of these techniques in my teaching strategies.
