IGB International School (IGBIS) proudly hosted 128 educators from 18 different schools across Malaysia and South East Asia at the 4th Annual EdTechTeam Kuala Lumpur Summit Featuring Google for Education on 7 and 8 October. The two-day high-intensity event focused on deploying, integrating, and using Google Apps for Education (and other Google tools) to promote student learning in K-12 and higher education.
The summit featured world-class presentations by passionate speakers who travelled from USA, Canada and Australia. The keynote speakers were supported by local teachers and educators (including 10 from IGBIS) who ran a variety of workshops on creating websites, using virtual reality in the classroom, student portfolios and how to get the best out of the Google suite of educational tools. Many of the workshop presenters were Google for Education Certified Educators, Trainers, or Innovators as well as Apple Teachers or Apple Distinguished Educators.
They shared their passion and expertise on topics like Project Based Learning (PBL), digital literacy, STEM, maths, digital citizenship, assistive technology and more. Attendees walked away empowered to embrace 21st century tools in their teaching and learning and eager to share what they had learned with their students in the classroom. They also had lots of fun and made great connections with teachers from a variety of schools across Kuala Lumpur and Southeast Asia.
The EdTechTeam and IGBIS are looking forward to working together next year when IGBIS hosts another successful summit.
