The inaugural national Education Technologies (EdTech) conference is being held in Wellington on Friday 12 April.
"EdTech" is an umbrella term that is used internationally to describe a wide range of products and services. These can range from digital video content, learning games and digital resources to learning management systems, eAssessment processes, and student management systems. Within the EdTech world there are discussions occurring around themes such as the role of on demand video programming, 'flipped classrooms', mobile learning, infographics and data visualisation, 'big data', MOOCs, the future of eBooks, blended learning, and more.
This conference aims to create awareness in New Zealand about this fast moving field and its opportunities for collaboration, networking and export. It is funded by Education New Zealand and Grow Wellington, with programme input and assistance from Learning Media.
