Dear Teachers,
At this busy time of year, how about re-charging your batteries by engaging in some stimulating professional learning? Can’t decide what to do? Here’s where ACMI Education can help you out.
We have designed a program to build knowledge and skills and give you a chance to try out new ideas with like-minded colleagues.

We invite you to join us for a screen literacy smorgasbord of professional learning opportunities and a preview of what ACMI has in store for 2013.

Please book quickly, as we anticipate keen interest in this program. For those who are unable to participate this year, register your interest in a similar program at the start of Term 1 next year.
Regards,
Christine Evely
Education Manager
