Why do you think global collaboration is so important in education?
Learning does not take place in silo. We have to discuss and collaborate with our peers, locally and globally, to advance our knowledge. In collaboration, we argue, deliberate, debate and counter-propose ideas, all in the name of learning. In the modern world, global collaboration is made easy and fast with the Internet.
It is a platform for educators and others to exchange and share the latest educational innovations and ideas.
Dr Chan Chang Tik, will be speaking on ‘Collaborative Learning in Informal Spaces: Barriers and Supports’
