CreativITy 2019 supports all educators of Digital Technologies, ICT and Digital Solutions.

Run by educators, for educators, CreativITy 2019 provides an opportunity to develop your capacity to teach in four themes:

  • Robotics / Digital Technologies (both days)
  • Creativity
  • Virtual Reality
  • Digital Solutions (both days)

Learn from other educators, academics and industry, how to lead your class and school in the use of new technologies and computing curricula.

Network with the Queensland community of IT educators, committed to improving computer education in our schools.

Bring your family, and while you learn, you have an opportunity to start your midyear break at Australia’s leading tourist destination, the stunning Gold Coast.

Learn in depth about your selected themes, engaging with colleagues as you spend full days together with keynotes, sessions, excursions, workshops, and hackathons, to develop your ability to take back new technology skills and pedagogies to your school.

Celebrate together at the Galaxy Seafood and Mediterranean restaurant conference dinner where we will be awarding QSITE Teacher of the Year, Emerging Leader, Leader, and Making IT Happen Awards.

CreativITy 2019 will be an opportunity to network with fellow computer education leaders, academics, and edtech providers; find out the latest in approaches and technologies to support computer education and have some well-deserved fun.

Conference Program

CreativITy 2019 features a choice between 3 themes each day.

Theme Choices for Day 1 – Robotics, Creativity, or Digital Solutions 1&2 theme.

Theme Choices for Day 2 – Virtual Reality, Robotics/Digital Technologies, or Digital Solutions 3&4 theme.

Each theme includes a keynote, six theme sessions, an excursion, a workshop, and a hackathon!

Each day will begin and end with a common keynote, and we will all attend the included dinner on Saturday night, with another excursion to Holowverse on the way.
