We’ve got two weeks to go until you can tune in to Education Exchange (E2) live and catch a special streaming episode of What’s New in EDU, featuring teachers from five different countries sharing their parts of the #Road2E2 story.
Our annual Education Exchange serves as an opportunity to come together and explore industry trends – including emerging technologies that support teaching, skills development, modern pedagogies, safe school environments, and predictive analytics that identify at-risk students. It’s a great event for education leaders who help transform today’s teaching systems into learning organizations.
