Day 1 @ 13:45

Transforming Australia's schools: from technology to teaching and wellbeing

Australia's schools face a decade of transformation. The workforce is under pressure; expectations about using data and evidence continue to grow; and digital technology is ever more deeply embedded in schooling. PwC's school education practice exists to help schools and systems navigate these changes, which bring opportunity as well as challenge. Starting with the big picture, the presentation will then describe how PwC and Microsoft are partnering to harness technology at two interdependent levels: first, to improve the school experience for students, educators, staff members and parents; second, to give education systems the insights they need to make better decisions.The technology vision is an intuitive “one-stop-shop” administration platform to support finance, student and academic management in schools in Australia on the Microsoft platform. The ultimate purpose is to support teaching, wellbeing and student outcomes.
