Conference 2016 A Huge Success!
Conference 2016, Waves of Change, held in Nelson during the first week of the holidays, was a huge success. Many of our members from across the country took advantage of three days of professional learning and development, focused in particular on new technologies to support student learning both inside and outside the classroom. The focus on technology was timely and relevant; the keynotes were inspiring and motivating; the food was excellent; the conference dinner was a great occasion. As Martin East, NZALT President, noted in the final farewell, "I recognise the many months of behind-the-scenes hard work that go into making our conferences successful. My special thanks to Anne Robertson and Jeni Lemberg, who worked tirelessly with their committee and helpers to make everything run so smoothly. Thank you also to Eddy van Til, conference organiser, for his significant efforts in the background. Thank you to all those who attended and participated. I am sure everyone will have taken something worthwhile away with them."
