About The YoungLearners Conference

“If we teach today’s students as we taught yesterday’s, we rob them of tomorrow.”
(John Dewey)
There’s no doubt about it our kids are drawn to technology whether it be touchscreen TVs, tablets, smart phones or apps. But how can this interest in technology, and the technology itself, be used – not just for games - but to improve teaching and learning of young children; and better prepare them for a life-time of learning in a tech-savvy world?
A practical conference designed for K-2 educators wanting to integrate emerging technologies into their classroom (including tablets implementation, robotics, 3D printing, augmented reality, gaming and other disruptive technologies). Delegates will take away creative ideas that can be easily implemented in the classroom to support curriculum outcomes. Learn how to harness the potential of existing technologies and explore future possibilities.
