ICT Conference Explores Needs of 21st Century Student

12 years

The HCT Centre of Excellence for ICTs and Learning Technologies is pleased to announce the upcoming conference ‘Engaging the 21st Century Student’, to be held on 11 March at Abu Dhabi Men’s College.

The event will feature educational technology futurist and thought leader Marc Prensky who will lead participants on a journey from their digital immigrant roots to challenge their perceptions about technology and the digital natives which they interact with every day in the classroom.

The aim of the conference is to engage and enlist teachers to move beyond the use of technology for technologies sake. It will focus on developing an understanding of today’s students, how they think, how they learn and how they interact with technology.

HCT staff members who are interested in the event should contact their college Educational Technology Department.
