          Ka pai Jacky

          Agree Tessa, a very timely publication.  I used this yesterday in a TOD which resulted in a robust discussion.  Top of mind for most was the focus on collaboration, creativity, problem-solving and the importance of "soft skills'.  Linking it to discussions with people from community and business helped make sense for many of the group. 

          A 'must watch'.

            Thank you Jacky, you wouldn't believe how timely this video was for me!

            Yesterday I received an email requesting readings, or research around the merits of BYOD devices for a parent inquiry. I responded with the usual links to effective practice etc and also discussed the merits of e-Learning and Digital Technologies with strong links to the findings in The Future of Jobs Report from the World Economic Forum (2018), but this video you shared cut through all of that.

             It's not about the technology, its about what's good for society as a whole.

            So thanks for sharing, look forward to the next episode. smiley
