NZ gears up for education tech conference
Education, training and research providers, game and developers, hardware and software companies and content developers will converge on Wellington in June as the city hosts this year’s Ed Tech for Export (eT4e) conference.
US analysts predict the global education ICT market will grow at 3.05 percent annually until 2018.
Grow Wellington CEO Gerard Quinn says the conference is key to encouraging industry collaboration and ensuring New Zealand gets in on the growth in the sector.
The global performance of companies like open source learning management firm Totara LMS, customised tutoring venture LearnKo, which is targeting the Asian market, and Vital English, which supplies English as a Second Language resources and course content, has created the perception New Zealand is a leader in the space. But he warns we need to keep up with advancements in that market.
