Impact Hub was hosting an event with the theme of “Tech for Education.” Some of us from Liger invited to be speakers at the event. Liger students were presenting about our new digital system, Liger Digital Currency. My friends, Malika and Sreyneang were the representatives of the team. They were enthusiastically sharing this cool system we implemented on our school campus. I was truly believing that the presentation was inspirational and mind-blowing to the audience. There were many tough, good questions raised by the audience towards our friend; it was a great experience to hear their perspective and ideas.
Besides our team, there was a teacher presenting his idea of implementing the video game, Minecraft in his classroom. The purpose was to teach his students about the world and communities with facing of failures and successes. I thought it was a cool idea of him since it is really true that technology can expand its ability to teach kids about the worlds and communities. Minecraft is a video game focusing on being creative and collaborative with other players. Therefore, this teaching or learning style helps students to be more active with their classmates in term of teamwork.
Overall, I did really like the whole event because it was really interesting. There was great interaction between the presenters and the audience. I was also nice to see how tech technology manipulates the world in many distinguish ways through education. I also curious about what will Cambodia looks in the next decade with the implementation of technology in our education. It will be a big step for Cambodia to strengthening the education with the help of technology.
