Redefining Learning & Teaching using Technology
“Did you know that 16% of 8-11 year olds own five or more media devices and 72% of 12-15 year olds own three or more media devices? 51% of households with a child aged between 3 and 15 have a tablet compared to 7% in 2011. No matter where you look, children and students are using technology more and more because it is becoming more accessible. What is the education system doing to respond to this? Does technology have a place in schools? How can technology be used to effectively improve teaching, learning and productivity in the classroom?
