Our programme is ready, ready enough to share. We start on the 12th with a session on “Archaeogaming”, followed by a session on “Learning in the museum” and a conference dinner for the participants. On the second day, we continue with a session on “Digital tools in the classroom” and on “Digital Learning Evironments”. After the presentations, we join for technical demonstrations and a final discussion.
There is also a PDF version of the programme to print out and hang in your institute!
