As part of the national campaign in encouraging educational institutions to embed ICT across the curriculum, the Curriculum Management and eLearning Department (CMeLD) has organised EMBED 2009: Best Use of ICT, a three-day event exhibiting modern technologies and approaches towards the use of ICT in education.  The event was held at the Grand Hotel Excelsior, between the 27th and 29th of May 2009.

The event showcased ICT-related educational projects carried out during the past year as well as various workshops, in line with the European Union’s theme for innovation and creativity.  In addition, on the evening of the 28th of May, a prize-giving ceremony was held, recognising the best use of ICT across the curriculum and the best eTwinning projects for the year.  Such recognition promotes and shares good practice in ICT amongst educators across various local educational institutions, thus demonstrating that the paradigm of eLearning covers more than just the use of a computer. During this ceremony, Microsoft also launched the Innovative Teachers Forum, a competition for all teachers aimed at developing and sustaining best practice in ICT across schools for the forthcoming year.

Exigy proudly supported the EMBED 2009 initiative.  A representative from the company's management team presented four awards to the winning parties at the prize-giving ceremony that was held on the eve of Thursday, the 28th of May.  With the Exigy's recent partnership with Learning Possibilities, international specialists in the field of online learning, the company endeavors to support educational institutions in providing better opportunities to the local learning community by revolutionising the way teaching and learning take place.
