Facilitating disruptive and transformative learning experiences
A new and exciting event that breaks the mould of traditional educator professional development will be launched in Adelaide on 25 October 2012.
‘Designing learning in the Digital Age’ is based on the 10 global meta-trends identified in the New Media Consortium’s 2012 Retreat Communique.
Modelling a ‘flipped classroom’ approach participants will be actively curating their own learning, and will take away something more tangible than just ‘new knowledge’. The goal is to enable participants to facilitate disruptive and transformative learning experiences in their own organisations.
We live in a region with an expanding economy, and four out of the top five performing education systems exist in the Asian region. To compete successfully Australia needs to acknowledge global trends and adapt accordingly.
Massive investment in digital infrastructure through the National Broadband Network (NBN) is also providing many economic, social, technological and environmental opportunities for working smarter.
Every Australian needs improved information and communication technology (ICT) skills, and our educators need to know how to design and facilitate learning experiences that better equip students for work and study in a rapidly changing world.
