While it will require time for education to adapt to technological trends, it is important for academicians to already begin equipping themselves with new technological tools and platforms in order to capture the attention of students who are digital natives, and leverage such tools in innovating conventional teaching and learning methods 2.
In a world where technology is constantly evolving and impacting the way we live, study and work, it is important to keep pace with digital changes.
At the same time, education must also adapt to technological changes so that we can utilise that same technology to emphasise on intrinsic values such as kindness, as morality should not be lost at the cost of technology.
A live streaming was aired at all campuses while conference speakers shared their insights and took questions from the audience.
This conference not only provides our academicians the platform to learn best practices in digital learning from one another, it is also a clarion call to change and adapt, as the conventional methods of teaching and learning may not be as effective to current students who grew up as digital natives.
