Our conference is all about exploring the digital teaching and learning solutions out there. We are also a part of the Nordic Edge Expo, who work to promote smart city solutions. Since the corona virus prevents everyone from traveling and gathering in groups for a while, it was an easy decision to make the conference digital.
We are happy to announce that Tobias Heiberg Jørgensen will return to be the moderator for the conference. Tobias is the Head of the Teacher Education Programme at Playful Learning at University College Copenhagen (Københavns Professionshøjskole).
Digital is the new normal
Teachers and lecturers around the world suddenly had to start using new tools and applying new methods in their teaching. Businesses had to learn how to cooperate from a distance. And leaders how to communicate and lead without meeting their employees in person. Although many have used digital solutions at work before, no one could imagine that the whole world would switch to this degree of digital – in a heartbeat.
So, we have the tools, but which ones work best? Do we know the right methods for teaching and cooperating in a digital landscape? Will the sudden turn to digital solutions change teaching and businesses forever? And what is the way forward after this digital awakening?
We do not have all the answers but trust us – these questions and more will be debated during the KnowHow EdTech conference in September.
We will get back to you with the details on how to sign up and how the conference will be streamed as soon as the puzzle comes together. However, there are a couple of things we can say already:
- It will be a conference – not a webinar. Which means you will get curated content from different angles, put together by the expert conference team
- Instead of a one-day-conference, we will spread the content out in shorter sessions during the three days on 23 – 25 September
- The conference will give you a mixture of content, from keynote speeches to interactive sessions
We promise, the conference will not suffer from going digital. It might even be better!
Want to take advantage of educational technology in your teaching? We are collecting insight, tips and tricks from teachers who has tried and tested various tools. Our aim is to bring attention to tools, apps and programmes that are easily accessible and could be helpful to both teachers and students.
Are we outsourcing the classroom? An increasing number of independent technology suppliers and producers of educational content have entered the education system. Are they a threat to the established system – or an asset that improves the quality of education?
We are so grateful for everyone who took part in our event and debate with the topic “Outsourcing the classroom”. We filmed the debate and will publish here as soon as possible, so stay tuned. Until then, check out the photos from the event!
