INNOVATION STAGE

26 September 2018 | 16:30 - 17:00 | Education Technology: Where Do I begin?

You have decided on this journey to adopt education technology at your school or university. What comes next? What is your vision for this endeavour and how do you build a blueprint to see it through? What does your community look like and how would you like them to interact with the technology that you implement?

Delve into these questions, and more, from the perspective of an educationist, technology enthusiast and head of a group of private international schools that pioneered the use of education technology in Malaysia.

Explore the applications of EduTech systems in different aspects of teaching and learning as well as school management. Discover how to leverage on the spread of data from administrative systems to serve your school more efficiently, and consider how your choice of Learning Management Systems can shape the tone of learning experiences in your classrooms and influence the skills that learners develop through their engagement with this technology.

Examine how to outline your technology selection criteria based on the functionality that your community needs while ensuring infrastructure compatibility. Once your choice is made, explore strategies to build understanding, acceptance and enthusiasm for technology throughout the social fabric of your institution. Understand the frameworks, processes, policies and support structures that are key to successful education technology adoption, and how a self-directed, educator-driven initiative can keep your deployment sustainable.
