EdTechReview organised the 3rd Educational Leadership Conference on 7th August 2015 where Knit was the Principal Partner and BoniO, Explorars, KidZania, iBranch and Flinnt were the Associate Partners.
The conference witnessed over 200 school leaders that included directors, chairpersons, principals and administrators from private schools in Delhi NCR.
The ‘Educational Leadership Conference (ELC) 2015 | New Delhi’ was an array of sessions, panel discussions and case study presentations on the effective use of educational technology and best practices for 21st century education. With the central theme ‘Leading in the Digital Age’, the conference offered a platform for school leaders to learn and share experiences and practices regarding the use of technology in schools across learning, teaching and leading processes.
The conference clearly highlighted the need for technology integration and a future-ready vision for schools to meet the needs of the 21st century. The discussions also brought a consensus on the need for bringing Digital Citizenship into the school curriculum, making the most of available apps for effective communication in schools and emphasised the need for continuous professional development.
The ELC brought educators and K-12 educational leaders together to understand the inevitable role of technology in education and share insights and practices for effective learning, teaching and leading in the 21st century. All participants agreed that there is need for a strong education community whose members come together and develop resources to support each other with a commitment to effective technology implementation and integration. It was a unique learning experience for all in understanding the inevitable role of technology in education and amazing digital leadership practices.
Encouraged by the positive feedback from the educational leaders, EdTechReview has already launched a series of similar events on themes related to ‘leading in the digital age’ in the year ahead in various cities of the country with the next in Bangalore on 9th October, 2015 at Vivanta by Taj, MG Road, Bangalore.
