Activated 21st Century Education

Teaching in the 4th EdTech Revolution

Our mission is to Activate 21st Century Education and so maximise the impact of technology on teaching and learning. To do this means providing educators with:

  •  Access to proven training
  • World-leading education experts, and
  • Effective online platforms and resources. 
 

There is an old African proverb – “If you want to go fast, go alone; but if you want to go far, go together.” We believe the future of education belongs to those who go together. And so at ACT Education we have brought together some of the world’s best education experts to walk together with you on your journey to activated  21st century education.

Discover how to transition your education institute using our 3 step Look, Learn, Lead approach

 

The first step in any transition is understanding where we are – what works, and what isn’t working – what resources we have, and what we are missing. Arising out of years of research is a set of specially designed survey instruments that create a visual map of where your school/organisation is in terms of modern education. We will provide you with a picture of your readiness to move forward towards effective 21st-century education.

Equipped with a picture of your organisation we design a customised journey map of your recommended training and technology path. We also offer support to assist you in navigating this journey.

 Leading in modern education means knowing the difference between the bleeding edge and leading edge. Using a range of resources, from online forums to webinars, we give educational institutes access to relevant, effective content to make informed decisions going forward,

We will take your great content and activate it in an effective online learning environment.

A Grand Prix supercar essentially consists of the same components as a consumer car – wheels, engine, suspension, etc. The difference is the supercar is carefully constructed to perform at incredible speeds. The same is true when it comes to transitioning to online teaching and learning. The difference is not the technologies we are using, but how we construct these technologies to empower incredible teaching. We assist education institutes in setting up effective online learning spaces that encourage activated teaching and learning.

Success Stories

Your Education Technology Dream Team

Many people can build your house, but if you needed to build a house on the edge of a cliff you would want the best available experts helping you. As educators, we find ourselves on the edge of the proverbial cliff of change. How we build our education institutes now will impact what happens in the uncertain times ahead. To help you build the best education institution possible, we have assembled what is arguably, the most highly qualified and experienced team of education technology experts in the world.

ACT Education was founded by Dr. Craig Blewett who has over 25 years experience in education as well as a PhD in education technology. He has written many books and is an internationally acclaimed speaker and writer. His innovative ACT approach to education has been developed into a book, online courses, workshops, webinars, and more. His approach has been featured on TV, radio, and international media, and has been described as “genius”, “a mind shift of epic proportions” and “a renaissance”. Unlike most traditional approaches to modern education, the ACT approach is based on proven research, years of experience, and thousands of educators’ input.

In addition to this team, several PhD and Masters research projects are underway at universities around the world exploring the ACT approach and seeking ways to further extend its effectiveness for teaching and learning.

An education journey that starts at pre-school reaches its pinnacle in a Ph.D approx. 25 years later. However, very few reach this lofty goal. Of those who do, only a small subset earn this pinnacle qualification specialising in education. And of these, even fewer have a PhD specialising in education technology. As education institutes step into a new dawn, who better to lead us than a team of pinnacle education technologists. Our team looks forward to assisting your institution on your journey to 21st-century education.
