EdTechNZ Auckland Meetup: How digital tools can help students achieve industry relevant skills and quals – Auckland – 3 April 2019

What

Details

The role of digital platforms in helping students achieve skills and qualifications that are industry relevant.

Join us and be part of a conversation around how; the gap between education and employment leads to a gap between employee and employer expectations.

Emerging digital technologies such as smart classrooms and online tools look to ensure scale and deeper outreach to integrate education and skill based programmes.

Looking ahead, how can we ensure education and essential skills are integrated using relevant technologies and key stakeholders to maximise and sustain our future economies of scale

We’ll seed the conversation with presentation from Senthil Perumal of YouthHub about the recent launch of the Accelerator youth training programme at The Warehouse and how technology will play a significant role in scaling this. Then we go to the floor to chat about the role of technology in addressing challenges such as:

Is the scale of the youth-unemployment problem in New Zealand a result of lack of jobs, lack of skills, or lack of coordination? What are the obstacles that youth face on their journey from education to employment?

Which groups of youth and employers in New Zealand are struggling the most, and what’s the role of the private sector, education and tools in combating this ? What can be done to address the problem?

Refactor: Auckland Sarah Jennings, Melissa Firth and Tanya Kennard-Campbell – Auckland – 26 March 2019

What

A brand new year! A brand new Refactor! We’re back at the amazing Warren & Mahoney studio in Wynyard Quarte

Speaker Profiles

Sarah Jennings

Despite training in Biomedical Science and Computer Science, Sarah has found her way into Operations & Strategic Management at StretchSense Ltd. Sarah has been on her journey with StretchSense for the past five years and her roles have touched everything from production, research/design, intellectual property and project management – to her current role as COO. She thoroughly enjoys the mix of strategic planning and inevitable risk mitigation that occurs with a small, highly agile product-focused hardware technology company and is forever grateful she braved the jump from academic (biological) research into the technology sector.  

Melissa Firth

Melissa has over 20 years’ international experience working with teams to conceive, design, build and manage user-centred digital products and channels. Before moving into leadership roles, she learned a lot as a producer, project manager and UX designer. Her most recent role was Chief Digital Officer at Te Papa, where she built the museum’s digital capability from a standing start; increased the public’s access to Te Papa’s collections through rapid digitisation and open IP policies; and established Mahuki, the world’s first culturetech accelerator. Prior to that, she was Head of Digital Business for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s commercial arm. Now, Melissa helps organisations with their transformation, product development and business model innovation challenges, and she has also co-founded Again Again, a convenient cups-as-a-service system for takeaway coffee without the throwaway. It’s the first non-digital thing she’s worked on in her life.

Tanya Kennard-Campbell

Tanya began her career working as a mental health professional in the UK. She has been a program lead at NIMHE England, led her own social enterprise, created mental health resources and spoken at numerous conferences on the subject of recovery and human potential. She started designing and delivering change programs for teams of health practitioners. Through this work she discovered how to effect change in leaders and teams, despite their deeply held behaviours. Now she loves nothing more than supporting leaders to be comfortable in their own skin, to bring the best out in their teams, to inspire loyalty, commitment and respect that reaches well beyond the workplace.

Auckland Science Fiction Book Club: Neuromancer by William Gibson – Auckland – 9 April 2019

What

Winner of the Hugo, Nebula, and Philip K. Dick Awards, Neuromancer is a science fiction masterpiece—a classic that ranks as one of the twentieth century’s most potent visions of the future.

Case was the sharpest data-thief in the matrix—until he crossed the wrong people and they crippled his nervous system, banishing him from cyberspace. Now a mysterious new employer has recruited him for a last-chance run at an unthinkably powerful artificial intelligence. With a dead man riding shotgun and Molly, a mirror-eyed street-samurai, to watch his back, Case is ready for the adventure that upped the ante on an entire genre of fiction.

Neuromancer was the first fully-realized glimpse of humankind’s digital future—a shocking vision that has challenged our assumptions about technology and ourselves, reinvented the way we speak and think, and forever altered the landscape of our imaginations.

Hotwired to the leading edges of art and technology, Neuromancer ranks with 1984 and Brave New World as one of the century’s most potent visions of the future.

About the Book Club

This is for all lovers of books – in particular science fiction and fantasy. We’ll meet once a month, on the second Tuesday of the month at a pub so you can have a drink and food if you want to.
We’ll read a variety of books by both male and female authors and try to vary them across different sub-genres eg Dystopian Fiction, Feminist SF, Literary SF, Post-Apocalyptic SF, Short Story Collections, Space Opera, etc.
