The Changing Face of Education

Craig Kemp
Digital Learning Consultant


In this session, world-renowned educator and global education keynote speaker, Craig Kemp (@MrKempNZ) will share stories about the current landscape of global education and the need to support learning through digital technologies in a transformational time. Craig will explore with attendees how to change mindsets and empower learning through effective and purposeful integration of technology, using case studies from his experiences as an educator in New Zealand and Singapore for the past 12 years. In a world of constant change, the ability of educators to connect their students (and staff) to the world through engaging experiences will ultimately empower the learning journey they experience at school.
