Teachers as Designers Within the 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR)
The society puts high demands on teacher knowledge and competencies to integrate digital technologies and design into their daily practices. Building on teachers’ own needs and concerns, this workshop addresses the challenge for teachers as a community to be better prepared for and meet the societal challenge that digitalisation and user-centered design means for schools. The goal of this workshop is to encourage teachers to use multimedia design to enhance their students’ learning experiences in ways that enrich teachers’ time and improves students’ ability to learn.
