EdTech Newsletter – July 2018 Update

EdTechNZ is a community across different sectors. We work and collaborate to maximise opportunities and address challenges from education technology in New Zealand classrooms and around the world.

We had great discussions at the meet-up this month with the subject “What is online learning?”. We covered off things such as: How could online learning support or replace the traditional learning, what are the benefits and barriers to online learning and how EdTech could support the benefits and mitigate the barriers? Monthly meet-up is a safe and inclusive place to share ideas, present challenges and seek support. It is open to anyone who has some stake in EdTech in NZ, from early childhood, K12, Tertiary, Trade training, Industry and including adult learning and continuous education.

The big event of the year, New Zealand Education & Technology Summit, will be from 3rd-4th July 2018. The main focus for this year is “Creating pathways for 21st Century learning”. Another big event coming up is EdTechNZ Connect Event in Wellington (25th July) with the panel discussion on “The Future of Education is Now”. We look forward to seeing many of you there.
