This teaching is made possible through Te Kura’s implementation of Brightspace and in this session Te Kura will show how it is applied and the results.

The Future of Digital Learning
Presented By:
Kevin Bell – Digital Education Analytics
Time:
3pm AEST
COVID-19 has enforced massive changes to the nature of work and education and presented an opportunity to rethink our ideas on what a successful learning experience can be. Now is the time to consider how technology can shape digital learning for the future. Technology can offer better and more efficient access to information that provides better insights into successful teaching and learning. It makes us rethink about the broader opportunity to seek new formats such as micro-credentialing and how institutions and corporates who adopt these methodologies are more likely to meet the needs of teachers and learners.
COVID-19 is a catalyst to reinvent the future of work and create opportunities for companies to look at things differently.
Our ability to recognise and proactively equip our teams with not just physical resources, but skills, mindsets, behaviours and values, will be critical in ensuring that we bounce back better.
