Owners of Australia's fast growing K-12 online learning environment Schoolbox, James and Sean help independent schools in Australia and New Zealand transform their teaching, learning and online communication.

Today’s youth live in a digital world surrounded by devices, technology, online communities and are socially engaged though the web.

The emergence of these digital natives is forcing traditional teaching methods/technology to move so rapidly, educators can be confused by how best to leverage digital learning to deliver an engaging learning experience through technology.

James and Sean introduce how digital natives learn, how BYOD can work and how to style teaching and use technology in the classroom to fit with the mobile, social and and online world our students live in.
