This session is held on 19 Apr, 3.00pm to 5.00pm.

The fallout from the pandemic, continuing advances in digital technology, and intensifying pent-up demand for learner-centred learning have combined to present an unprecedented opportunity to transform education across whole systems. The pandemic has accelerated a large-scale digital adoption and transformation, leading to an increased need for acquiring new skills. This powerful shift to a learner-centred system will be amplified by technology and driven by education that is steeped in purpose and meaning.


During this shift, technology has played a critical role in enabling learners to stay connected, engaged, and motivated. Educators around the world are continuing the learning journey for their classes by integrating video, game-based learning, and powerful collaboration tools into their virtual lessons, and learners are experiencing a new type of learning, which will have an important, lasting impact.




This is a fully online session conducted via ZOOM.  Participants can participate in the session from any venue of their convenience with a laptop / device that is compatible with ZOOM.  More details on participating in the session will be send to the confirmed registrants.
