EduTECH conference 2018
Gil was asked to present as well as act on the advisory board of EduTECH 2018. EduTECH is an annual two-day educational technology conference and exhibition in Australia. The conference is held at the International Convention Centre Sydney[. Primary, secondary, tertiary and corporate educational institutions come together annually to discuss opportunities of technology for teaching and learning.
Gil presented on the idea of creating a community using a technology engagement offering and focused his subject about integrating the community into a creative and technology offering. Using Makerspaces as the model, Gil described a pathway and structure to create a self-sustaining and teaching space that can be implemented in a public space.
Gil was fortunate enough to also be invited to present at HP’s Star Theater on the expo floor, sharing his ideas with teachers, principles, and IT support staff looking at the new range of equipment tailored to STEAM and Maker creating and teaching.
