To support the education sector in rapidly shifting to digital ways of teaching and learning, global tech and innovation leader Lenovo, in collaboration with Microsoft, is sponsoring two presentations in the ongoing EduTech Live Webinar series. EduTech is an annual education conference where experts discuss the use of technology and innovation to advance quality education in the Philippines.

“Education is one of the sectors that have welcomed the transformation brought about by social distancing and other precautionary health measures. Driven by our vision of Smarter Technology for All, Lenovo has collaborated with educators to create customer-centric innovative solutions catered to students. These solutions will enhance students’ digital literacy by providing them with optimal learning experiences that will prepare them to excel in the digitalizing world,” says Michael Ngan, Lenovo Philippines president and general manager.

EduTech Webinars are free and open for all upon registration. These are streamed via EduTech’s official website and are then available on demand via Lenovo’s official Facebook page

Going Virtual: Shifting to Remote Teaching and Learning

Scheduled to air on Thursday, May 28, 2020 at 11:00 AM, Lenovo’s first sponsored webinar titled Going Virtual: Shifting to Remote Teaching and Learning will identify the challenges faced by schools as they constantly keep up with the quick digitalization of the education sector. It aims to introduce new ways of maximizing technology as an educational tool to be able to deliver efficient teaching methods online during the quarantine. It will also discuss what the “new norm” will most likely be for students and teachers, at least up to early next year, as the world overcomes the health crisis and gradually rolls back to the way things were.
