K-12 Ed Leaders Congress


The K-12 Ed Leaders Congress is one of eight congresses taking place simultaneously at EduTECH®.


The Congress is Australasia’s largest event designed specifically for principals and their education leadership teams.


Globally celebrated experts and inspirational Australian practitioners share their thoughts on how the ever-increasing levels of technology in our everyday lives will impact teaching and learning as we look to the future.

The Congress delves into the big picture vision for technology in schools, providing strategic advice on how to:


  • Use technology as a vehicle to drive improvements in pedagogy and learning outcomes

  • Select a mobile program that will engage and empower students

  • Take advantage of the vast potential for learning and collaboration offered by the cloud

  • Personalise the learning experience with the power of data and analytics

  • Move your school to a culture of flipped or blended learning

  • Develop your students’ (and teachers’) 21st century fluencies AND meet the requirements of the Australian Curriculum

If you want to discover new ideas about how to drive 21st Century Learning, the K-12 Education Leaders Congress is the one event you can’t afford to miss.
