‘Education Reimagined’

Presented by: Travis Smith, K-12 Education Industry Lead, Microsoft Australia

While 2020 has been a challenging year for many in the education sector, it’s time now to reflect on some of the positives to emerge from the impact of the global pandemic. Increased skills of educators, speed of innovation by large educational jurisdictions and IT vendors and the possibility of a new alternative model for education moving forward are all examples. The possibilities for the future of education globally are bright, as long as we take time to learn from the year that was. Let’s celebrate some successes and look to the future.
