Leading Learning in the Digital Age: Promise, Progress and Pain
Abstract: Focus has shifted from whether or not to embed digital technologies in learning and teaching, to understanding which technologies can be used for what specific educational purposes and investigating how best they can be embedded. This presentation will describe the current trends and myths related to digital transformation in education. Stories of promise, progress and pain related to leading learning in the digital age will be shared by two outstanding Principals of R-12 schools. Kevin Richardson and Lynne Symons will briefly outline some of the key lessons learnt from their schools. The presentation will conclude by identifying some of the major implications for future investment in the use of digital technology for learning in schools.
The spotlight event is free to all registered AGM attendees and will begin at 6pm.
