Global tech innovator Lenovo, in collaboration with Microsoft, introduced the EdVision program in 2020 to assist schools in their digital transformation journey and increase digital literacy among the new generation of teachers and students. This March 23, Lenovo is holding its first-ever EdVision Summit, a virtual event exclusively for educators and members of the academe across the region.
Themed “Bridging the Gap in Learning and Technology Under the Not so New Normal,” the summit will feature esteemed experts from Lenovo and collaborators Microsoft, Intel, and IDC. Speakers and panelists will discuss the transformation of education and implementation of new models of teaching, learning, and collaboration.
“With digital transformation in the education sector hastened by the pandemic, a lot of new technology has emerged in the market to help schools adapt. In this time of radical changes, the EdVision Summit offers the platform to have the much-needed conversations on the future of education. Through raising discourse and developing innovative solutions and services, EdVision aims to lead the way to education transformation and empower institutions and students in this pivotal movement,” said Michael Ngan, Lenovo Philippines President and General Manager.
