REIMAGINING EDUCATION IN THE FOURTH INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION BY HARNESSING 21ST CENTURY SKILLS
– Our Challenge: Do we need to change the way we teach? How do we make 21st Century Skills a key priority in our schools?
Back by popular demand, you are invited to the second annual CLASSROOM OF THE FUTURE INDABA at the Cape Town Science Centre. There is no charge for teachers to attend – Yes! It is all free once again – MAHALA at this INDABA for teachers. Teachers are invited from all grades and from all schools in the Western Cape.
What is this event all about?
Embracing technology is no longer seen as a nice to have, but a necessity. Empowering teachers and students in the classroom, applying technology in new ways enables behavioural shift and inspires improved learning outcomes.
Leaders in educational technology, Microsoft along with other organisations, will be on hand to present their technologies via workshops, presentations, and demonstrations for all teachers.
Join us and be inspired. Not only inspired but come to better understand how technology can work for you in your classroom.
Some good stuff…

14:00 – 14:30 KEYNOTE ADDRESS – Ronelle Klink
Modern teaching and learning make the most of new and immersive ways to explore the curriculum. It nurtures a growth mindset in learners, emphasising future-ready skills to help them thrive in jobs not yet invented. It’s unafraid to use new technologies and new forms of assessment to gauge learner progress. Re-imagining education in the 4IR, requires examining what transformation should include. “ … We need to inspire learners to embrace a limitless future and to see their learning as purposeful to what they can make and do.” Anthony Salcito – Vice President of Worldwide Education, Microsoft
