PitchEd – K12 EdTech Event — 27 October 2020

PitchEd – K12 EdTech Showcase

Practical STEM Online & in the Classroom

The PitchEd K-12 EdTech Showcase will profile Australian EdTech solutions that are proven, available, and ready to scale in the K-12 sector.

This event will feature an in-conversation session with Associate Professor Joanne Jamie, Co-Director of the National Indigenous Science Program, and Renee Noble, Executive Director of the Girls Programming Network. Both are prominent leaders in K12 STEM education.

Learn about how under-represented students have been connected with STEM learning through dedicated programs. We’ll discuss how schools can deliver engaging STEM education online as well as in the classroom—particularly in the COVID context. Practical experience is key to engaging STEM learning, we will explore how we can create this experience digitally and face to face.

This event also highlights the role the broader NSW education sector has to play in the EdTech Ecosystem. As educators and administrators, you can play an important role for the EdTech sector as you become co-creators of the most innovative education technologies in the world. In turn, the Edtech sector offers fresh, innovative delivery platforms that will help you become more effective in the classroom.
