Event Speaker: Kevin Martin
Centre Manager, Digital Education Futures Institute (DEFI)
With a wealth of experience across the fields of education, technology innovation, poverty alleviation, marketing and business, Kevin Martin is now guiding the mission at the Digital Education Futures Institute (DEFI).
The main goal at DEFI is to work with global partners in industry, policy and practice to creatively explore the field of possibilities that digital technology opens up for education; developing new models of education in order to rigorously investigate their implications and potential impact. While DEFI will never be an uncritical advocate for the use of more education technology it will serve as a catalyst for innovation and development.
