This year’s Bett Asia Leadership Summit and Expo that was held at the Mandarin Oriental in Kuala Lumpur, addressed key opportunities to support collaboration and improve education systems across the Asia Pacific region. The event paved the way for thought provoking discussions, interactive exhibits, business opportunities and exclusive CPD-accredited training sessions for educators.

Bringing together over 1,7000 attendees of policy makers, leaders and experts in education and technology sectors around the world, the two-day event opened with a ministerial panel discussion on ASEAN collaboration and moving towards a 21st century model for education.

Another issue that was highlighted during the discussion was improving the traditional way of teaching, by moving away from teacher-centred learning to create greater opportunities for personal learning.

Apart from that, the worldwide partner Microsoft returned with an exciting lineup of activities, which featured keynote sessions, device demos, partner solutions, a passport adventure competition, the highly-anticipated Microsoft School Leaders and the Teachers Academy.

Following a successful introduction in 2016, the Microsoft Teachers Academy was geared towards primary and secondary educators showcasing tools and digital technologies that help amplify learning and teaching in the 21st century classroom. Some of the topics that stood out during the workshop included Authentic Assessment Using Microsoft Forms and Minecraft: Education Edition.
