Date and Time
700 Bourke St, Docklands VIC 3008, Australia
We are all about supporting educators to build real things that make a real difference for kids (that’s why we are called Education Changemakers and not Education Changetalkers). The day before the big event (EC19), we are the EDlab, which is an action-focused day of learning, building and connecting. You can come by yourself, or with a team and from midday to 5:00 we will move through a design thinking process to help you solve an education challenge that you identify. During the EDlab you will have the chance to hear from and work alongside the brilliant experts that we are flying in from all over the world. So you will learn a bunch, meet some inspiring and experienced educators and walk away with a real strategy to launch in your school. There are two streams during the EDlab, and these are ‘Leading Great Learning’ and ‘Leading Great Schools’ with more information on these streams below. You can decide which stream to join on the day. This price also includes great food and drinks and a networking event at the end of the day.
The two streams are detailed in more depth below:
