As most Australian schools are on holiday this week, we’re not running the education-specific Tech Tuesday this week or next. So for a fortnight, the only webinars to note are general technical ones - although they are not specifically focused on education ICT, the subjects they cover will be of interest to IT managers across education.

All of the timings for the webcasts are AEST (Australia East Coast time).
See ** below for more details on how the webcasts work
