Join us at the SMART IGC20 Virtual Exhibition Hall

Wednesday 28 October to Thursday 5 November 2020

Teachers, students, and parents have had to embrace new technologies and pedagogies to ensure the continuation of student learning. #IGC2020 will showcase Australian educators teaching beyond the walls of the classroom.

Now, more than ever, educators are looking for practical applications, creative ideas and insight into what it means to teach beyond the walls of the classroom. The exciting aspect of this is that everyone has their own take on it. This one-day, 3D virtual event includes live video streaming, keynote and breakout sessions, speaker Q&A, interactive exhibits and more. Experience it from anywhere – at school, at home, in the office or any place you’re online via the sophisticated SMART 360 Platform.

This is a FREE, NESA accredited and AITSL aligned conference, aimed at educators across Australia wanting to inspire greatness in others.
