Lessons from uLearn ahead of 2020

School News is attending the conference – come and say hello or refresh this page for all the key takeaways!

Rotorua’s Energy Events Centre will be packed with over 1000 educators across three days. They’ll be talking, planning and presenting on three big trending themes in education: Citizenship, Disruption, and Innovation.

Reimagine learning | Pohewatia te āpōpō is the title of this year’s annual uLearn, a futures-focused education conference run by CORE Education. The conference mission is to consider what New Zealand’s learners need to thrive in a world that is faster, more uncertain, and more complex than ever before.

Keynote speakers leading the three main themes are local entrepreneur, Shay Wright (Te Whare Hukahuka) and international speakers, Dominic Liechti (Apple) and Sally Ann Williams (Cicada Innovations).

The uLearn19 programme features over 100 breakouts sessions offered by educators and others including, Microsoft’s Ngā Motu for Minecraft: Education Edition demos, Apple’s hands-on #EveryoneCanCreate sessions, an Innovation and Inquiry Symposium and facilitated panel and sofa discussions.
