DLTV is proud to host ACCE2021 online March 15 to 19
From the Desk of DLTV’s President
Probably like many of you, I am proud (but not surprised) at how well Victorian teachers transitioned back to remote learning in the recent brief lockdown. I know my school and its community learned so much from the previous lockdowns, and this relatively smooth transition demonstrates the digital skills and confidence developed over the past 12 months. I hope this was the experience for all our readers as well. We know lockdown is not easy, but I believe that our community should be incredibly proud of our resilience, ingenuity and responsiveness.
Looking forward, we have an exciting conclusion to Term 1. Don’t forget about our virtual symposium in partnership with the Australian Council for Computers in Education (ACCE). This is an entirely online event that has been designed to be as accessible as possible, to provide teachers with limited budgets and time constraints with access to cutting edge research and to share the innovative practices of our DLTV community. A number of international keynotes will be joined by educators doing wonderful things at a local level. For a small payment you can attend as little or as much as you like.
The first look at the program is in this newsletter and also available on our website. I think you’ll agree it’s an impressive line-up. Another reason to attend is our major sponsor, Acer Computers Australia, has donated some exciting prizes including an Acer Spin 3 laptop and a Travelmate laptop.
In addition to this virtual symposium, I would also like to assure you all DLTV will be running our renowned annual 'face to face' DigiCon conference in Term 4 (dates to be announced soon!).
Other brief updates:
Recently several of DLTVs staff and committee attended the reopening of the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) in Federation Square. It is a great space that provides a rich learning experience for all educators and students. I would strongly encourage you to visit their website for more information on their extensive education programs or, if you’re in town, you can always visit ACMI in person as it open to the general public.
We are currently planning our Term 2 events, including our webinars and other community activities. We will also continue to send out our popular newsletters to our DLTV community. If you have any suggestions or there is something you would like to see us do please contact DLTV's manager Kevin Daly via email@example.com as he is always keen to hear from you.
As always if you have any queries regarding anything DigiTech don’t hesitate to contact our hard-working team.
