Following on from the recent launch of SIGNAL's in-depth report "Horizons 2020: Trends in Technology Education", a timely exploration of what we need to do to evolve technology education to better serve a future New Zealand, report author Stuart Charters, will be presenting alongside co-author Martyn Rivett as part of Techweek TV, Friday 31 July at 3pm.
The session will discuss what roles tech businesses need to play in developing the next generation, touching on a wider range of areas, particularly diversity and inclusion.
Other questions to be discussed include:
- How do we attract young people into tech?
- How do we address NZ's changing demographics and the impact on tech talent pipelines?
- What role do tech businesses need to play in developing the next generation, or is this (just) an education sector issue?
