Redefining Learning & Teaching using Technology. | Jason Brown | TEDxNorwichED

“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?

Jason is a Year 13 A level student studying at Wymondham High Academy. He is passionate about technology in education and has been working with Microsoft to promote technology in education since November 2013. Part of his role as a Worldwide Microsoft Student Ambassador is to promote and advocate the use of technology such as smartphones and tablets in the classroom and inspire students to make the most of the technology they have. He has presented at events in Seattle and London about technology in education.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
