Everything we do leaves a digital trace. The analysis of this data is changing the world we live in. Join us for a Q&A style event where four experts will be discussing the future of data in relation to education, research, security and careers.

Scitech and ECAWA are bringing four educators and experts together to discuss:

  • Steven Payne (Stand Out Education) will look at how teachers and school leaders can use their school’s data to spot trends and make informed decisions for student outcomes
  • Dr John Morgan (ICRAR) will share his radio telescope research and the challenges (and thrills) of large amounts of data.
  • Matt Schneider (Optika Solutions) will address future key challenges around data security, types of digital jobs we will have in the future; and ultimately what role Artificial Intelligence will play in our world.
  • Rachael Whitney-Smith (MAWA) will share resources to enhance subject teaching and links to the curriculum.

Refreshments will be provided, and cash bar is available at this event
