A realistic approach to learning - navigating the maze of tech

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!


Human skills are paramount in the development of culture in education organisations - and - in an age where every other sentence seems to include the word "technology", how can we stay grounded, embracing the unique characteristics of the human being - whilst using technology solutions for the betterment of education - reducing workload and supercharging processes and outcomes.

"Implementing IT-based solutions to academic learning in school is much more difficult than it first appears!" - That's the common consensus of many teachers. So, how can we transition from a culture of fear and loathing of past technological failures - to embracing the modern solutions that are providing robust, quality, affordable options for teachers and students to maximise learning and slash workload.

Follow and contribute to this panel discussion - with your thoughts and questions, and take home practical ideas around how best practice can be achieved.
