EdTech Month

The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) is a leading authority in the applications of technology in education. It runs an annual Conference in the US with over 16,000 delegates from around the world. This inaugural half-day webinar brought experts from the ISTE network to Asian educators. An expert panel discussed how technology can facilitate self-directed learning. The two workshops showed how we could design blended learning experience for K12 and higher education.
