This new event demonstrates Ireland's readiness to explore how new technology and teaching methods can make a very positive contribution to our shared economic future. We are fully committed to supporting Irish teachers in making lessons more relevant, inspiring and engaging, and we hope that our investment helps secure this event as an annual fixture on the school calendar."

Event organiser, Maria McMenamin said, "We are expecting 1,500 teachers, principals, parents and government policy makers to attend the conference and exhibition nearly 500 have registered to attend to date.
