Singapore, Nov 4, 2021 - (ACN Newswire) - On 9-11 November 2021, EDUtech Asia will once again bring together the entire education ecosystem across Asia Pacific and beyond to explore how technology is impacting the way we learn and teach.
Over the three days, over 250 expert speakers from K-12 Schools and higher education Institutions will be addressing 20+ key themes such as new pedagogies, AI in education, learning technologies, virtual classrooms, digital assessments, wellbeing and many more.

On day two, Justin Reich, Associate Professor in Digital Media, MIT and Author of "Failure to Disrupt: Why Technology Alone Can't Transform Education" separates truth from hype, explaining what technology can--and can't--do to transform our classrooms and argue why successful reform efforts will focus on incremental improvements, not the next killer app. Building on that, Anne Johnstone, Principal, Ravenswood School for Girls, and Chair, Positive Education Schools Association will explore the Transformative Potential of Positive Education in Challenging Times.
