FEEDBACK FROM PAST JOB-A-LIKES

“This was the best PD I’ve had in ages, maybe ever. We need to do this more regularly.”

“It was great to meet and talk to colleagues in other schools – to develop our professional networks, share ideas, challenges and solutions.”

“We don’t get this opportunity very often.”

“The simple format was highly effective. Without a presenter, as PD is usually offered, it allowed us time to focus on the things we wanted & needed to, and to learn from each other. There are a lot of talented individuals in this community.”

“My learning was highly relevant to my situation. Loved it. Gotta do this again soon!”

EVENTS HISTORY

The EdTech Job-a-like began in 2012, with the technology directors of several schools in Hong Kong, Shenzhen & Guangzhou meeting twice a year. Sensing a greater need for all technology staff to engage in tech discourse, the April 2014 gathering was expanded to include both technology coaches and technical staff.
