On 7-11 November 2011 in Dundalk, County Louth, Ireland, ASEF ClassNet teachers and students got their creative juices flowing as they learnt and shared ways of bringing new technologies into their classrooms to nurture creativity.
109 educators and students from 33 ASEM partner countries learnt and shared ways of bringing new technologies into their classrooms to nurture creativity.
The conference opened with inspiring introductory presentations by Mr Ciarán Cannon, TD Minister of State at the Department of Education and Skills, and Mr Denis Cummins, President, Dundalk Institute of Technology.
Over the subsequent 5 days, participants actively engaged in professional enrichment sessions, speed networking and interactive workshops on topics ranging from “Effectiveness of Creativity in Education through Performing Arts Using ICT Platforms” to “ICT Skills for the 21st Century”, and from “Apps in the Classroom” to “Collaborating Professionally in the Cloud”. Through interactive plenary sessions, ASEF ClassNet teachers also considered how to continuously develop their network.
Once again, student representatives from the 6 award-winning Online Collaborations, attended the conference, presenting their activities to the conference and experiencing a day at a local school. 38 new Online Collaborations for the subsequent year; giving many more students the opportunity to learn about other cultures, while developing increasingly important ICT skills.
