Wednesday 21st March - Thursday 22nd March 2018



One of five parallel conferences running at the National FutureSchools Expo. A practical conference designed for coalface educators wanting to integrate emerging technologies into their classroom (including coding, robotics, drones, 3D printing, wearables, augmented reality, gaming and other disruptive technologies), and ICT managers wanting to support these technologies. ClassTECH encompasses ICT across the curriculum, STEM, and the new Australian Curriculum - Design Technologies.  ClassTECH will help you harness the potential of your existing classroom technologies, embrace new technologies, and understand how to prepare your students for what’s coming…



Classrooms are awash with unprecedented amounts of technology…..and more's on the way. Early adopters are already finding classroom applications for emerging tech such as 3D printers, laser cutters, drones, robotics, games-based learning platforms wearable technologies and augmented reality.

How can we leverage technology to enrich and deepen learning experiences, all the while meeting curriculum outcomes, keeping school communities safe and productive, and without blowing the budget?


Australia’s Chief Scientist says we need more STEM skills. The Makers’ movement is becoming mainstream. And children, parents and teachers are tinkering, experimenting and exploring

Are you ready for a ClassTECH revolution?


Who Should Attend?

  • All Year 3-12 teachers and educators curious about emerging technologies
  • Principals / Deputies / Assistant Principals
  • Curriculum Leaders and Head Teachers of STEM including Technology, Maths and Science
