The Auckland EdTech Meetup group is for educators, entrepreneurs, technologists, education reformers, and EdTech enthusiasts looking to discuss and share inspirational keynotes, panel discussions, member spotlights, and hands-on learning experiences.
This is your chance to connect and collaborate with like-minded educational innovators.
We will meet to explore various topics at the intersection of education and technology, to learn about the latest technologies that are supporting teachers, and to hear from teachers about the challenges in education that must be addressed now.
Who we are
The Education Technology Association of New Zealand (EdTechNZ (https://edtechnz.org.nz)) is the voice of education technology in New Zealand. It is a community of education technology companies, organisations and educators.
The role of digital platforms in helping students achieve skills and qualifications that are industry relevant.
Arrive early for a 4pm sharp start!
Join us and be part of a conversation around how; the gap between education and employment leads to a gap between employee and employer expectations.
Emerging digital technologies such as smart classrooms and online tools look to ensure scale and deeper outreach to integrate education and skill based programmes.
Looking ahead, how can we ensure education and essential skills are integrated using relevant technologies and key stakeholders to maximise and sustain our future economies of scale
We’ll seed the conversation with presentation from Senthil Perumal of YouthHub about the recent launch of the Accelerator youth training programme at The Warehouse and how technology will play a significant role in scaling this. Then we go to the floor to chat about the role of technology in addressing challenges such as:
Is the scale of the youth-unemployment problem in New Zealand a result of lack of jobs, lack of skills, or lack of coordination?
What are the obstacles that youth face on their journey from education to employment?
Which groups of youth and employers in New Zealand are struggling the most, and what’s the role of the private sector, education and tools in combating this ?
What can be done to address the problem?
