Support for efforts to adopt CEE tools


Taking the words of A/Prof Matt Beane in Learning to Work with Intelligent Machines, there is a tension between mastering new (digital) tools and adapting tried-and-tested method of engagement toward new tools. He advocated giving ourselves ample time to do one thing after another instead of trying and failing both at the same time. Give yourself some runway to master new edtech tool and build up your comfort in using one. Finding the sweet spot of solution, that is both within your comfort zone and learners’ needs, might need a few iterations to get right. Join our learning events and workshops to shorten your learning curve or just join the inlab community to continue our dialogue on best practices and ways to overcome barriers and resistance in our journey of digitalising learning and training.
