Can technology facilitate learning on a level playing field?

Presented by Associate Professor Chris Tisdell, Associate Dean (Education), UNSW Science

Education is changing.  Rather than traditional classrooms in schools and universities, we now have classrooms in "clouds".   In this presentation Chris will provide some critical perspectives on technology in education, including the ideas of: openness; scale and inclusion.  Is technology really the answer to challenges in education? 


The Scientia Education Academy invites you to join Chris for this lecture and afterward for drinks and conversation.
