Race Against The Machine

 

How are we preparing students for the next digital revolution?

 

Whether you believe that next digital revolution is imminent or already upon us, it is evident that technology is already succeeding in accelerating innovation, driving productivity, and ultimately transforming our schools and society. The 2019 WA Education Summit focuses on readiness for our schools.  This event will provide strong examples and strategies to help schools prepare our students for tomorrow’s world. Via three streams, this event will bring extraordinary school case studies from across the nation, inspirational and ground-breaking keynote speakers as well as hands-on workshops that provide new and transferable skills to the classroom.

Please note that this event is exclusively for schools.

Education Leaders

Effective digital transformation isn’t just about technology. It requires a willingness to adopt technology in new ways, beyond administrative process. It must be continual and evolutionary in order to enhance teaching and learning, support business processes and improve efficiency. It also necessitates collaborative working; vision and leadership; culture; process and methodology – and the technology itself. These are the challenges that face leadership in today’s schools.

Hear how some of the country’s leading schools are responding to the challenge, and how to lead the change in yours.

IT Managers

Hear how AI and machine learning can assist in today’s schools. Hear best practice examples that ensure school’s technology infrastructure is scalable, secure and reliable. Learn how to manage vast numbers of mobile devices, streaming services and new applications for communication and collaboration for today’s classroom.

Teachers

Hear about the evolving nature of students’s technology use and the ever-changing implications for their learning, social relationships, identity, and well-being.

Learn how an effective STEM classroom fosters a positive culture that allows students to problem-solve, collaborate, create, test ideas, and build.

Listen to real world case studies on how game culture, game design and games for training are critical to understand and leverage in preparing young people for the future of education and beyond.

Speakers

We are extremely excited to be able to bring together these remarkable speakers. Read more about who they are, and their sessions below.

Dr Joanne Orlando

Dr Joanne Orlando

Technology and Learning: Researcher, TV Presenter, Industry and Education Expert | Sydney, NSW

Dr Joanne Orlando is a leading analyst and commentator in the field of children and technology. Her work focuses on the evolving nature of children’s technology use and the ever-changing implications for their learning, social relationships, identity, and well-being.
A key aspect of Joanne’s research is gaining first-hand perspectives from children on why they use technology in the ways they do. What she finds out in her research is often surprising and not what adults assume or expect.

A key element of Joanne’s work is applying her analysis to a wide range of real world scenarios. Joanne works closely with several multinational technology companies (including Apple and Norton) in an advisory capacity - sharing her research and insights to assist in the development of better products and practices to ensure children’s technology use is positive.
She is a well-known international media commentator on the educational, ethical and social issues that arise from our technology use and the best ways parents can guide their children. Joanne has introduced terms such as ‘zombie scrolling’, ‘sharenting’, and ‘fintas’ to explain and guide the new ways technology is being used by children and adults.

Joanne’s is currently examining children’s participation in e-Sports; young children’s informal use of AI in their play; and how AI can support the independence of young people with cognitive disability.

Joanne's Session: Trends on children’s uses of AI and the implications for school learning and engagement

Technology use is generational and the ways children and young people use technology is increasingly different to the ways adults - including their parents and teachers - use technology. Basing school technology use on how we think children use technology can therefore be disconnected and disengaging for students. My research focuses on understanding children’s uses of technology from the perspective of the children themselves. In this presentation, I will explain current trends in children and young people’s informal home and social uses of technology, and their interpretations as to why they use technology in these ways. I’ll focus on their uses of artificial intelligence, the advantages of their uses, the skills and knowledge they are losing and gaining, and how their increasing reliance on these new directions in technology is effecting their learning and engagement in schools.

Trent Ray

Through his time working in education, Trent has taught and lead through many roles within both Primary and Secondary Schools here in Australia.

Working as part of the Education Team at Microsoft, Trent is also a Master Facilitator Trainer for the Microsoft ICT Peer Coaching and 21st Century Learning Design Framework.

Trent's Session: Future Ready Schools

Trent is excited about the future of education in the digital age and believes that, now with ubiquitous access to technology in schools, we have the platform to launch into exploring new ways to collaborate, create and innovate. Hear how advances in the space of Mixed Reality, the use of Big Data in Predictive Analytics, Gamification, AI and Cognitive Services will shape learning into the future. With an imperative for today’s learners to be ready for Industry 4.0, many schools nationally have already introduced and explored frameworks that support teachers to design learning experience that leverage these technologies practice and develop future ready skills. In this session Trent will address strategies to reflect on your school’s current transformation journey and uncover strategies to ensure your school is Future Ready.

Kate is a Member of Professional Speakers Australia and the Australian Institute of Company Directors as well as an Honorary Member of the Australian Computer Society.

Kate's Session: Why Games Are The Future

Games and play are kind of a big deal. This year it is estimated that the games industry will be worth $140 billion USD, which is bigger than both the film and music industry combined. And this is just games for entertainment, and does not include gamification, serious games or other adjacent industries or technologies, such as virtual and augmented reality (now being called XR).

At the same time, schools are finding that children no longer know how to play. All the while, we're struggling to keep up with the massive changes happening in all aspects of society, education and business thanks to disruptive technologies.

This talk will show how understanding and leveraging games as a culture, a mindset and as a process are critical to preparing for the future of work and education. Overall, we’ll uncover why we need playfulness now more than ever.
