Returning for the third consecutive year, EduTECH Asia, Asia’s largest education conference and exhibition, organised by Terrapinn Pte Ltd and featuring more than 250 speakers, brings together educators from across the entire education spectrum: from early years practitioners through to tertiary education leaders. The three-day in-depth conference and technology exhibition, happening between 8-10 October, aims to discuss and debate the profound impact of technology in education, focusing on the importance of learning spaces and what it means to reshape the future of learning.
“As the biggest education conference in the region, EduTECH Asia aims to address issues that educators need to focus on to make Asia a leader in preparing students for the future workplace. A gathering of like-minded individuals, the conference addresses how Asia can cope with the rapid pace of tech transformation, working towards a common goal of developing platforms that suit the demands of the future,” said Ms Sharon Roessen, Managing Director of Terrapinn.
Addressing the needs of learners today, the three-day exhibition and conference supported by Singapore’s Info-communications Media Development Authority (“IMDA”) and the Employment and Employability Institute (“e2i”), will host a variety of workshops, presentations and panel discussions, alongside over 80 exhibitors who will be sharing their latest technologies in the industry.
With keynote speakers Alex Beard, author of Natural Born Learners and Ken Montgomery, Executive Director of Design Tech High, the conference will also see notable speakers in the industry share their insights and knowledge on the future of education in the region.
“We are proud to collaborate with international thought leaders and exhibitors with the latest technologies in the education sector. With the future of learning being so closely intertwined with technology, we look forward to seeing how these ideas can be brought to life,” added Roessen.
This year’s EduTECH Asia will, for the first time, include an interactive Robotics Zone, an Entrepreneurship Village and hackathon. Featuring student teams, the hackathon seeks to challenge young minds as they tackle education issues of today, stretching the limits of their creativity. The winning teams will get to present their ideas to senior educators on the second day of the conference.
From digital learning apps to open-source learning platforms, exhibitors at EduTECH Asia include Trap-ed, Wacom, Crestron, Ricoh, D2L, Moodle, Reactor, Beeducation and more. Attendees will benefit in hearing from exhibitors and industry experts on the latest in teaching strategies and cutting-edge technologies.
The event will take place at Singapore’s Suntec Convention & Exhibition Centre from 8-10 October, with school tours happening on 11 October.
