Day 0: Education forum
What now and what next in the digital landscape?
This one-day event on the Wednesday of NetHui will be led by Core Education. It’s aimed at teachers, educators and education professionals and will look at the opportunities and challenges the Internet provides for transforming education.
We want to emphasize:
- the importance of exploring opportunities
- a solutions-based focus on the issues and challenges of the Internet in 2015.
We’ll be exploring themes of equity, inclusivity, purpose and passion.
The collective strength of the group is our diversity and ability to challenge and support one another to identify need and opportunity within the education sector. This will result in:
- Resources and materials to support future collaboration and cross-sector opportunities. These will be co-created during our time together.
- New and improved professional networks to support you and your organisation.
