Best of EDUtech Asia 2021, 9 to 11 November

Tom Worthington and Martin Dougiamas at EduTech Asia 2018
Martin Dougiamas, and Tom Worthington
at EduTech Asia 2018, Singapore 
Here is my pick of EDUtech Asia 2021. Of course it will not be quite the same as in 2018, in person in Singapore, but the organizers have done a good job of translating the format online. I hope to be there in person for 2022. The key keynote, of course, has to be Dr. Martin Dougiamas, founder and CEO of Moodle. He is the most influential tech educator who most educators, even the ones who use his software, have never heard of. ;-)

Keynote: A vision for an equitable global education ecosystem - the open education movement

Education is a basic human right, and we all greatly benefit from a global population that is well-educated. It therefore makes sense to strive towards a world where our educational processes, and all the tools and skills required to manage and support those processes, are easily available and affordable by all. This is a key reason behind UNESCO’s 2019 Recommendation on OER, for example, and the wider movement of Open Education. In this presentation, Dr. Martin Dougiamas, the founder and CEO of Moodle, the open source learning management system used by the majority of educational institutions worldwide, will elaborate on his vision of a global education ecosystem defined by open education technology infrastructure, supporting intentional creation and curation of open educational resources that support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, and capacity building of educators and technologists at scale.
