Spotlight Series

RISE Spotlight is a monthly series of free-to-attend digital events, based around key ISE technology areas. Produced in association with TNW, they will feature global subject experts, technology entrepreneurs and start-ups.

January – Harness the Power of Digital Learning

In 2020, pivoting to remote learning became an immediate necessity, rather than an option for businesses and academia, globally.  The need to keep students and staff engaged in the learning experience increased the roll-out of existing tools and drove the adoption of new ones.

In 2021, the demand for new interactive technologies will continue to surge. The field is fast developing and shows no signs of slowing down.  We examine the technologies boosting learning experiences and the issues around their successful deployment.

We bring together corporates, AV providers, integrators, futurists and educators for a rounded conversation on the future of digital learning.
