If you are an educator in Ireland (or if your summer travel plans include Ireland) be sure to attend the free 6th annual MAET/ICT/Educational Technology Conference (#GREAT13) on the campus of NUI Galway in Galway, Ireland on July 9, 2013 from 1pm-4pm (IST).
Last year’s #GREAT12 conference exceed our expectations. Over 45 of our #edchatie friends made it to DCU for the conference – it was an amazing day and we are looking forward to reconnecting and making new friends at #GREAT13.
The conference is organized and presented by the Year 2 Overseas MSU MAET students as a requirement for their CEP 815: Technology and Leadership course (see the assignment here), and is targeted towards anyone who works in the field of education (K12, higher ed, and beyond).
Below you will find archives of the past 5 conferences to give you an idea of the spirit of the conference:

One more opportunity to connect:
We’re also excited to head to a new part of the country! If you’re an educator in, or around, Galway I would love to talk to you about the possibility of visiting your classroom/learning space! Our students are eager to not only visit classrooms, but potentially collaborate with you on an activity. We will be in Galway June 23 – July 20, 2013. I know this is close to the end of the school year (which is a tricky time) but we are very interested in connecting with you! Just tweet me (@gravesle) if you’re interested!
