Learn & Work In 3D – Ideate, Innovate and Integrate

Innovative Technology for K12
IT4K12 2016

Welcome to ERAC’s Annual IT4K12 Conference!


This ERAC member event is specifically geared to K-12 Information Technology & Education professionals. Focus is on the integration of technology and digital resources in the teaching and learning process, as well as technology infrastructure, management, security, networking, system management, and other technical areas. There are two concurrent programs: one for education professionals, the other for IT professionals plus a central program of plenary sessions and keynotes to bring the two groups together.

The event combines Educational and Information Technology leaders and staff from across the school districts and independent schools in BC. Besides learning, sharing and collaborating across the K-12 education sector, communicating valuable suggestions and solutions, you’ll also enjoy connecting with your peers from around the province.

The convergence of education, infrastructure and application makes our work most meaningful but is also of greatest benefit to our students. Join us in making a difference!

Registration is NOW OPEN!
