Program Schedule

The Google Educator Conference will focus on the interests of Primary school teachers on the first day (October 9th) and the interests of Secondary teachers on the second day (October 10th). However, we encourage teachers to attend on both days, as many of the presentations and materials will be useful for all participants.

The conference aims for minimal presentation format and maximum hands-on activities to allow participants to manipulate the materials themselves and put together their own teaching plans.

All events will take place in the Indian Ocean Marine Research Centre (IOMRC), (Building 453, Fairway Entrance 4), at the University of Western Australia. Directions to the venue is available from here.
