Digital Documentation – Opportunities and limitations – NESA Registered PD

As our world becomes more and more reliant on technology, services find themselves faced with the question: digital or paper-based documentation? Many services have begun documenting through digital platforms but will they do everything?

 

This session will discuss current digital documentation platforms which will enable educators to reflect on the benefits of these tools and how they could be used in their context. We will explore the opportunities that exist and what the limitations are when using digital platforms to document planning, programs and reflective practice.

 

This is a great session for those considering digital documentation as well as those currently utilising it.
