Conference FAQs


Need convincing to attend the SIMON User Conference 2024?

We get it — your teaching and admin time is valuable, and so is the school budget needed to send you to a conference like the SIMON User Conference 2024. In support of your school's $125 investment in your attendance to this great conference, we’ve put together some indisputable reasons (at least we think so) to prove that this one’s worth it. Please refer to the points below: 

  1. Start by letting the team know that on May. 13 & 14 2024, you’ll have the chance to learn from expert education, administration, data and technical practitioners covering topics like Wellbeing, Social Behaviour, Community Engagement, Lesson Planning, Learning Analytics, Curriculum Mapping, Efficient NCCD Tracking, Specialised Primary School Workflows and much more.

  2. Learn from and network with industry experts and top practitioners. We’ve got a lot of brilliant speakers joining us this May and this is your chance to get some facetime with them: hear from them on the big stage, hands-on workshops with them in dedicated and relevant sessions pertaining to your role, mingle with them during breaks and networking sessions.

  3. This one’s pretty straightforward: there’s a lot of new tech, SIMON innovation, ideas and trends out there. Figuring out exactly what’s worth you and your school's time and energy is next to impossible, so we’ve gathered a group of experts to present the very latest in our world of SIMON and our partners to directly help you prepare for the next exciting steps in educational technology.

  4. Share tips, ideas and learnings with fellow attendees. The people you’ll want to meet with and learn from aren’t just listed on the speaker schedule. We prioritise opportunities to network so that you can meet a ton of fellow educators, administrators and technical innovators working on real-world learning challengers similar to yours. We’re expecting over 200 attendees, and we can bet you’ll make some powerful connections with a good handful of them throughout your time with us.
  1. Come back to work refreshed and inspired! The whole program is focused on helping you tackle projects today, plan for tomorrow and to create a better future through SIMON and our partners, with speakers discussing which technologies and methodologies we need to know now, what the future of SIMON will bring, and how we can build more inclusive and collaborative learning communities.

  2. Personalised, flexibility and relevant. The SIMON User Conference 2024 offers a flexible and personalised opportunity to listen and engage in topic that a relevant "to you" — this means you can customise your experience throughout the 2 days giving you maximum benefit.  You will also be provided with healthy refreshments throughout the 2 days feeding your mind, body and soul (ok, maybe we went too far on that one).
