“Just arrived in Singapore for the Microsoft Global Education Exchange Summit. Looking forward to learn something new,” Akoto nicknamed Owura Kwadwo Hottish wrote on Facebook on Wednesday, March 14.
The Microsoft Education Exchange (E2) event has been in existence for more than a decade and serves as an opportunity for teachers to come together and explore industry trends – including emerging technologies that support teaching, skills development, modern pedagogies, safe school environments, and predictive analytics that identify at-risk students.
It’s an event for education leaders who help transform today’s teaching systems into learning organizations.
