Let IT Bloom 2021 supports all educators of Digital Technologies, ICT and Digital Solutions.

Run by educators, for educators, Let IT Bloom 2021 provides an opportunity to develop your capacity to teach in five themes:

  • Digital Technologies P-6
  • Digital Technologies 7-10
  • 11-12 General – Digital Solutions
  • 11-12 Applied and VET (ICT and Cert)
  • Cross Curricular

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

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 spring break at Queensland’s Garden City, Toowoomba.

Immediately following Toowoomba’s celebrated Carnival of Flowers opening weekend, spend two days learning in-depth about your selected themes, engaging with colleagues as you spend full days together with keynotes, presentations and workshops to develop your ability to take back new technology skills and pedagogies to your school. Take a break in the STEM playground with augmented reality Mario Kart, virtual reality using Oculus Quests, a flight simulator, racing car simulator, and more!

Celebrate together at the conference dinner.

Let IT Bloom will be an opportunity to network with fellow computer education leaders, academics, and educational technology providers; find out the latest in approaches and technologies to support computer education and have some well-deserved fun.

Conference Program

Each day will begin and end with a common keynote, then a choice of workshops during the day, and we will all attend the included dinner on Monday night.

More details will be available as the conference program develops, and as this is a conference for educators, by educators, you can contribute if you wish. Please use the link at the top of the page to submit your proposal for a workshop or presentation.
