Event description

Description

Join us for our FREE Personalised Learning event for New Zealand educators.

What’s it all about?

Personalised learning addresses learner variability and seeks to make education more authentic and accessible for all learners. It does this by providing multiple ways in which learners can access the curriculum and express their understanding, while at the same time ensuring they engage with the learning content and learning processes being provided.

New technologies, in particular G Suite for Education and Texthelp’s toolkit of Google Chrome solutions, provide innovative ways to support and extend this access, expression and engagement. However, just having the technology available in teaching and learning isn’t enough. This workshop will provide you with the initiatives to meet each of your learners’ unique needs, and develop your understanding of personalised learning in your classroom and school.

Guest speakers include; Kimberley Hall (EdTechTeam Australia), Vanna Blucher (Hobsonville Point Secondary School) and our very own Texthelp Education Specialist, Greg O’Connor.
