“Embracing the New Era of Technology Driven Education”

Our aim is to provide a one-day conference focused on career-empowering, knowledge, practices, networking and practical teaching solutions, designed with the specific needs of teachers in mind. The objective of the Tech Conference is to provide practical, hands-on and immediate strategies that teachers can immediately use across every level and in every subject area.

In this 21st century, education is vital to individual and collective development. Technology can be a powerful tool in transforming learning. One of the most important aspects of technology in education is its ability to level up the field of opportunity for students. It can help affirm and advance relationships between educators and students, reinvent teacher’s approaches to learning and collaboration, and adapt learning experiences to meet the needs of all learners. However, to fully realize the benefits of technology in our education system, educators need to always encourage themselves to always update their approaches, which is very essential. Technology increasingly is being used to personalize learning and give students more choice over what and how they learn and at what pace, preparing them to organize and direct their own learning for the rest of their lives.

“Enabling Inquiry-Led Learning Through Technology”

“The forced integration of online learning through the COVID lockdown has resulted in a more individualised learning experience for students and frustration for teachers and school leaders. It has also led to a growth in the abilities of teachers to use technology to facilitate student learning. As we move towards face-to-face learning, teachers and school leaders must assess which technologies have just filled the gap created by enforced distance and which offer students authentic and beneficial learning experiences and opportunities.
I will present how I believe that inquiry-led learning opportunities that enable collaboration and self-direction not only get the best results from students but also empower them to become lifelong learners. I will share technologies I have used successfully to enable authentic collaboration and how they can be used in the classroom.”

“The Power of AI and Innovation in the Education Sector”

This presentation will introduce how advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence are transforming education and classrooms around the world. 

As an example, Century use algorithms similar to those used on Netflix, but rather than recommending what to watch or what a person wants; a student is given what they need to learn and not just more of what they want.  Nano-lessons are automatically set and questions are self-marked with data collating in easy-to-interpret dashboards for teachers and senior leaders, with no extra workload.

The platform can also suggest curriculum content to a student that it deems appropriate, eg by the reading level of the student.  A student can always simply click on alternative content, in which case the platform’s AI may spot trends in preferences of the student.

“Digital Mural, when Technology Meets Street Art”

A mural is a piece of artwork or a painting executed directly on a wall or a ceiling. Historically, murals have been around since the beginning of humankind when the first humans created cave paintings. Murals can serve many purposes, such as beautifying public or private spaces. Murals can also memorialize or record a historic event and become a medium of education, political, or social commentary over time. 

During this pandemic, people, including artists who explore murals and street art, are forced to stay home. Can we create a mural from home? The answer is yes. In the era where digital life is blending with real life, we can utilize digital software to create murals digitally, better yet, everywhere we want in the world! In this session, participants will learn about the basics of mural art and create a digital mural in low tech and high tech practical methods that can be applied in art class based on their needs. 

Materials needed:

Tools: Pencil and eraser

Hardware: Laptop/PC, mouse.

Software: Free digital painting website – Sumo Paint https://sumo.app, https://bomomo.com/, Google Street View.

“Practical Music Education Technology”

In today’s music education classroom, teaching with technology is to be expected. A teacher who puts his foot down and resists technology is now the exception to the norm. Engaging positively with the technology available can have remarkable results in a classroom in terms of students` engagement and achievement. 

Great music education is a mirror of the students in the classroom. Great music teachers use music which reflects the cultural identity of the students while also extending them beyond that cultural safe place into uncharted territories. Great music teachers use easily identifiable role models for their students to help them understand that they too can achieve great things without the barriers of race, gender, gender identity, or sexual orientation. Likewise, great music teachers use technology to reflect their students’ use  and provide a way for children to see how to use technology comfort to create great music.

“HYBRID CLASSES is just a “NEARPOD” away”
Level: Secondary – Delivered in English

As the Covid-19 cases in Indonesia are slowly dropping in numbers, the Education world is now gradually picking up from where it left almost 2 years ago. From the drastic change from face-to face classes to online classes, we educators are again stretched to our limits as we now embrace this new phase in the New Normal Education … HYBRID CLASSES!
As some schools have already opened their doors to welcome back students, educators are now finding innovative means on how to engage learners in the Hybrid scenario. Of course, incorporating technology to our classes is now a staple in the teaching and learning process and one very recommended EdTech tool that will allow to have interactive discussion during HYBRID CLASSES is through the use of NEARPOD.
Our session will look into how we can use NEARPOD to accommodate both the needs of teachers and students during the class. Let us discover the countless possibilities this almost all-in-one EdTech Tool can help us. As George Couros, a leading educator and author, said “Technology will not replace great teachers but technology in the hands of great teachers can be transformational.” Let us take advantage of this time to integrate technology- NEARPOD – and make significant and unforgettable learning situations in the ever-changing world of Education. Indeed, HYBRID CLASSES is just a NEARPOD away!

“Reflecting on educational instructions and teaching strategies using SAMR Model (Substitution – Augmentation – Modification – Redefinition)”

Technology has the power to redefine teaching and learning experiences in and out of the classroom, but what happens if it does not? What if Google documents and other online word processors just become a digital version of paper and pen? What if high-tech devices and multiple educational software and applications just become a substitution for conventional teaching? Integrating technology adds a whole new layer in teaching and learning, but how can technology transform students’ learning experiences? How can we ensure that our technology-assisted methods encourage higher thinking order skills? In this session, educators will reflect on their ICT-based instructions and strategies using the SAMR model designed by Dr Ruben Puentedura and Blooms Digital Taxonomy.
