CreativITy 2021

In partnership of the Gold Coast chapter of the Queensland Society for Information Technology in Education (QSITE), Gold Coast EduTech, the Sustainable Schools Network, and Griffith University, CreativITy 2021 is a one day conference for leaders in school computer education.

The conference will be held on the Griffith University Gold Coast Campus on Saturday 19 June from 8:30am to 3:00pm

CreativITy 2021 has two strands addressing the primary and junior secondary Digital Technologies curriculum and the senior secondary Digital Solutions curriculum.

CreativITy conferences are focused on developing the capabilities of educators through the development of practical activities and a deeper understanding of approaches to computer education in schools.

The CreativITy 2021 theme is sustainability: sustainability of curriculum, sustainability of computer education, and sustainability concepts and practices taught in computer education.
