FuturEducation Symposium

I have attended the FuturEducation Symposium at The Deakin Edge, Federation Square, Melbourne on 27 Feb. In my humble opinion, this year's content is much more interesting and engaging- this may be due to the quality of panel speakers and the wealth of experience they bring to the table.

I am particularly attracted to the delivery model of e-textbooks that LearningField introduced in 2014. This is something that I would like to share with everyone in this month's blog. 

For an annual subscription fee of less than $200, Year 7-10 students and teachers can access to high quality textbooks published by the local educational Publishers, such as Oxford University Press, Cambridge University Press, Pearson, Jacaranda, Nelson Cengage Learning, PCS Publications and Helleman Books.

Upon joining, the users can access all texts in the depository with a single login! They can also consume content online and offline, make personal study notes and highlight key content, collaborate with teachers and classmates.

At present, the content in LearningField only covers textbooks. Perhaps in one day I hope that Learning Field will accept submissions from Publishers and individual content creators who produce resources in Workbook, Dictionaries, Worksheets and/or Study Guide formats.

I also can't wait for its subscription to be made available to anyone who are based locally or globally!

Well done, LearningField.
