The keynote at EdMedia 2014 by professor Jill Jameson titled “Why we Need Distributed, Transformational e-Leadership and Trust in the Fifth Age of Educational Media and Technology” resonated well with Edukata. Here I explain how Edukata can help schools take leadership over the changing eLearning and educational technology landscape.

We at Team Edukata have been hard at work. We don’t want to be the only people that can organize Edukata design sessions at schools. So we’re creating a way for anyone to become a certified Edukata facilitator.
“I would never have thought that my classmates were so creative.” The Spanish school of SEK Atlántico has been an active participant in the iTEC project, piloting Learning Activities designed using the Edukata method.
