This event may be of interest to folks in the Brisbane vicinity. I have no
idea if Wikipedia or wikis more generally will be discussed, but I know some
of you are teachers and/or have education connections.

Reading Room and QUT are excited to bring you an engaging program that looks

"Digital Technologies in Education"

The third instalment of our Digital Conversations series brings together

enrich the learning experience; and the challenges teachers and learning
facilitators face with the advance of the digital revolution.

With a great line-up of speakers sharing their expertise and first-hand
experience we will discuss opportunities, challenges and examples of the use
of digital technologies within education. A Q&A session will follow where
you can ask questions and get advice from experts in the field.

We will provide complimentary drinks and canap├ęs for you to enjoy during the
event and have dedicated an hour for networking afterwards.
