ELH Conference 2013

I attended the ELH & SchoolTech Conference in Lorne Victoria. This was called Roadmaps for Innovation.

Description from ELH website:

This three-day event is recognised as the definitive event in the local educational calendar and a unique opportunity for schools to share experiences and benchmark their performance against others.

Now in its 20th year, ELH SchoolTech has featured international and local presenters who push the frontiers of excellence – giving attendees rare access to the best ideas in education today. Explore new ideas across a diverse range of Keynote addresses, Critical Conversations, Institutes, Discovery Sessions and TIM talks (The Ideas Matter!).

ELH SchoolTech is created to meet the needs of a diverse audience, from schools embarking on technology programs to the most technologically advanced schools in Australia and New Zealand.

For the first time, this year’s conference will bring together the ELH and SchoolTech streams, helping drive deeper collaboration between educators and their IT colleagues to fuel greater innovation in Australian education.

We look forward to having you on board to share ideas and make this year’s event and enriching experience for all involved.


A very good experience, days started at 11.00 am and finished 5.00pm each day.


(18.5 hrs of contact time in sessions not including lunch, or drinks)
