Keynote Address: Innovation in Education
We have been talking about integrating technology in education for a number of years. What is different this time is that students are growing up with technology all around them, except in school. where they spend the majority of their time. We will cover why bringing technology into education is critical, what skills we should develop with technology, and also look at where technology in education will be in just a few years.
