Education Technology Innovation

The newly-established Learning and Teaching Innovation Department (LTID) focuses on promoting student success through new and innovative teaching methods,
with a special focus on technology-integrated learning.

Technology has pervaded nearly every aspect of our lives, and has played a very big role in changing how we see the world, how we interact with each other, and how we learn. Technology is going to play an equally big role in Educor’s future, and the LTID is responsible for mapping the way forward.

LTID is more about people than about technology. Clearly, the best technology in the world will be redundant if people do not see value in it for themselves and adopt it.
Hence the LTID places a lot of emphasis on supporting and motivating the people who will drive the technology implementation in the company.
