Technology may be able to make delivery of education and even learning faster, higher, and stronger, but our nature and social structures still necessitate a human element.  The changes being experienced by the education sector have to somehow be implemented through policy, and “sold” not only to other educators and to students, but also to governments and other stakeholders.  The impact of technology on pedagogy, distribution channels, and government policy will be explored in this session by Languages Canada Executive Director Gonzalo Peralta and BCCIE Lifetime Achievement Award winner and CEO SMRT English, Jim Clark
