Every lecture either gave me a concrete idea or indirectly inspired me to think further.

For the second year in a row, we organised this event with one goal - to improve the quality of education in Serbia. The focus of the event was on the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in education.
'New Technologies in Education' was held at Belexpocentar and in the conference facilities of the Holiday Inn Hotel in Belgrade, on 27 and 28 February 2015.
With the event, we wanted to support teaching and non-teaching members of staff in schools and universities in Serbia and around the region, as well as everyone involved in the modernisation of the educational process and better exploitation of possibilities new technologies offer.
This two-day event covered the following areas:
- Best practice examples of ICT use in primary and secondary schools
- Best practice examples of ICT use in higher education
- Inclusive education and ICT support
During the two-day event we had more than 2.500 registered participants. Over 50 speakers from UK, Serbia and the region prepared interesting presentations about creative ways of using ICT in education. About 2.000 livestream viewers had opportunity to follow 100 lectures online covering a range of topics in the area of ICT in education.
In parallel with this two-day conference, we organised a fair where the latest technological solutions in education were presented. More than 40 exhibitors − ICT companies, publishers, schools, universities and other educational institutions presented their state-of-the-art computer and audio-visual equipment, mobile devices, software, applications, digital textbooks and other products that may contribute to the increased quality of education.
The event was organised in partnership with the British Embassy in Belgrade, the Social Inclusion and Poverty Reduction Unit (Serbian Government), the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development, the Ministry of Trade, Tourism and Telecommunications, the Serbian Chamber of Commerce and other partners. In organisation of this conference, we are partnered with many other partners.
