Where Is Everything Going With The Government Change Initiative With Education IT… Or What You Think Is Valuable.
When education institutions like medicine are questioning do they have a future it is essential that NZ seriously considers where it must refocus its educational investment. ICT is the enabler of reinvented education with thought leaders suggesting we should question what we should focus on in education, when and where we should participate(challenging our linear and existing institutional approaches), and what is the shape of future qualifications and assessment. Sue will challenge us to think about how we must contribute to forcing these changes to happen to support NZ's prosperity.
