John Weeks, Headmaster of Knox Grammar School and Mark Scott, Managing Director of ABC Australia
Over two days, Knox Grammar School hosted the AIS ICT Integration Conference for teachers interested in the integration of ICT into the curriculum. With over 170 delegates attending the conference over two days, they know that creating an environment that’s ideal for growth is important and that attending to the continuing needs of the learner to sustain that growth is just as vital.
Through keynote presentations that challenged one’s thinking, traditional hands-on technology workshops, e-spot tasters and a significant hands-on un-conference-like opportunity, delegates were exposed to innovative ideas.
Our first keynote speaker was Mark Scott, Managing Director of ABC Australia. Operating on the principle that organisations must adapt or die in an era of massive technological change, Mark Scott has overseen the transformation of the ABC from a traditional broadcaster to a digital one. Mark offered insights into how he allowed the ABC to flourish through such substantial change.
