The conference will also give us an insight into how schools in Northern Ireland are engaging with ICT and provide us with an opportunity to network directly with the school leaders.”

Throughout the day local schools showcased how they are using ICT to create an innovative, engaging and interactive learning environment, collaborating within and across schools.
