The Southern Hemisphere might be bracing for colder weather, but if you’re part of the Asia Pacific education community (like us), June is packed to the brim with exciting ed tech updates and festivities that are bound to warm up your schedules!
The EduTECH Conference in June is the biggest meet up of educators in the Asia Pacific and the 2019 show looks to be just as big, with education leaders, visionaries and afficionados descending upon the resplendent Sydney Harbour to share the latest developments in learning and technology.
Visit Us at the Free Expo
While you need to book tickets to attend the main conference, the EduTECH exhibition is free. You can find the Britannica team at stand 911 (we’ll be near the front entrance, right next to the lounge area).
For those with a packed agenda, here are our top highlights to help you plan your day:
LumieLabs Speed Demo – Win a GoPro 4K Action Camera!
The video revolution is well and truly here – and we’re not talking about watching Game of Thrones in 8K.
The average teen consumes 68 videos every day and 400 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute. It is projected that by 2021, 82% of all internet traffic will be video. Video has become the overwhelming language of choice for today’s young people – so how do you harness your students’ natural engagement with video and bring it into your classrooms?
Join us for our LumieLab Speed Demos and see why LumieLabs is an ideal video creation platform for education. Find out how you can improve learning experiences across the curriculum with the power of video storytelling.
Remember to register your attendance at our stand – one lucky attendee will be walking away with a GoPro Hero7 Silver Action Camera at the end of each day’s sessions! See prize draw details (download PDF – 141KB).

Discover your Curiosity
Are you mostly Scientist, partly Artist with just a smattering of Inventor? Take a Britannica Curiosity Test and discover your curiosity profile. What kind of curious are you?
If you have thoughts, questions, a problem or a solution around Britannica’s resources or education in general, we very much want to hear it. You can book personal meetings with members of our team through the EduTECH App or by contacting us directly.
