CORE Education represents NZ at Singapore conference


Date: 28 March 2012

Leading eLearning company CORE Education is showing its commitment to the Singaporean market by sending five staff members to the International Conference on Teaching and Learning in Technology (ICTLT).

CORE staff will present spotlight presentations and workshops, as well as highlighting services through a trade stand.

CORE Education attended ICTLT two years ago, and is now set to present two spotlight presentations and a workshop. "We are delighted to honour our enduring relationship with The Principals Academy in Singapore by sending our staff to present e-learning in the New Zealand context, and learn from educators from around the world", says CORE Education CEO Ali Hughes.

CORE staff will not only be presenting at the conference, but will also be using the opportunity to promote the breadth of services that CORE Education can offer to schools in Singapore and beyond.

Presentations by CORE Education staff at the ICTLT Conference in Singapore represent a small area of work in which CORE is active, but offer a good representation of exemplars. Curriculum Manager Mary Anne Mills will present two spotlight presentations at the conference: "How can school leaders redefine, redirect and reshape their schools to focus on future orientated curriculum?", and, "Effective eLearning practices that impact on student outcomes". E-learning Facilitators Warren Hall, Kathe Tawhiwhirangi-Perry, and Anne Sturgess will present a workshop on "Key principals for growing eLearning capabilities in New Zealand schools".

"CORE will also have information on its Signature Programmes that build on CORE's 10 years of work providing e-learning and ICT professional development in NZ schools, and offer consultancy services to Singapore and SE Asia, there will also be valuable information on the upcoming International Conference on Thinking in New Zealand in 2013" says Mrs Hughes.
