Press Release - Think Tank on the Future direction of ICT in Education: 4 June 2010

- For immediate release -

Naace is hosting a Think Tank today at Holborn Bars, London on Friday 4 June to discuss the Future Direction of ICT in Education.

Mark Chambers, Chair of Naace Board of Management, will host delegates from a broad range of organisations all of whom have an interest in and passion for ICT in Education. Organisations such as NIACE, ALT, DATA, NATE, BESA, SALTIS, MirandaNet and many others will be represented.

It is hoped that following the event a joint statement will be issued to reflect the collective view of the importance of ICT as a fundamental right of all learners.

Naace, as the ICT in Education association and the leading independent advocate for effective ICT that supports learning, teaching and administration, is committed to sharing the outcomes from the Think Tank as widely as possible. In doing so it aims to fulfill the Naace mission to advance education through the appropriate use of ICT.
