Lenovo EdVision Summit: Bridging learning and technology in today’s normal
Bringing school online was not exactly on everybody’s minds before the lockdown, but here we all are, using the web and technology in our attempt to continue our children’s education in the new normal.
Our family has been homeschooling for a long time, so we were pretty much lucky that we didn’t have to adjust so much to the changes brought about by the pandemic and the long lockdown. But I have heard of so many families, schools and teachers who struggle with the unfamiliarity of the new school system.
This is why I think it’s great that Lenovo has come up with Lenovo EdVision Summit to help educate and equip our educators for what we now know as the new normal in education.
The theme for this year’s Lenovo EdVision Summit is “Bridging the gap in learning and technology in the not so new normal.”
At this point, we should already know that it takes more than having a stable connection or learning how to work Zoom to implement an effective online schooling.
Even if we have been utilising the internet and technology in schools for years, no one really anticipated that teachers will be holding their classes via video conferencing platforms, and schools will be holding their events online in 2020. At least, not in the way things panned out.
The sudden shift to online schooling has caught all of us off guard. The truth of the matter is that most of our local schools and teachers in the Philippines have limited experience in employing technology for teaching and lack the essential skills in navigating technology. Some of them have not even used online educational tools and software prior to the pandemic.
But just imagine what they can do when they get their hands on the numerous technological resources that they can utilise to make educating online smoother and easier for them, and more interesting and engaging for their students.
Through the Lenovo EdVision Summit, all these challenges will be addressed and solutions will be discussed by top educators and tech innovators from the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, Hongkong, and Indonesia.
Topics included are the Top 10 Predictions in digital education and how to prepare for it, “ensuring teaching continuity using today’s technology, and several panel discussions on teaching in the new norm, breakout sessions that tackle blended learning, collaborations, digitization of education, and much, much more.
The Lenovo EdVision Summit will also touch on topics on how to prepare today’s students for the new world that they’re getting into.
