SIM GE 7th Education Conference 2017
Technology in Education : What do educators have to offer in a world where information wants to be free?
The SIM Global Education (SIM GE) Education Conference is organised annually and aims to provide a learning platform for the SIM GE Academic Community to come together for knowledge exchange in research and best practices related to the educational field. It also serves as a communication channel to provide organizational direction and updates to better align all members of the Community towards SIM GE’s goals and vision.
With the evolving educational technology landscape, it can be challenging for educators to manoeuvre the teaching and learning environment to enhance student engagement in the midst of different technological solutions. Discover evidence-based and practical strategies to shape meaningful classroom experiences with technology while paying attention to content and pedagogical alignment.
In this year’s conference, we are privileged to have distinguished speakers from higher education institutions in Singapore and abroad. Use this opportunity to gather insights from leading educational researchers and practitioners to explore actionable strategies for systematic application of technology-enhanced learning based on the TPACK (Technology, Pedagogy and Content Knowledge) framework.
There will be attractive prizes and door gifts up for grabs. Stay tuned for more updates on the event agenda.
