This is the first conference of its kind in Canada that will focus on the role of IoT and Big Data in improving the Canadian education system and how these technologies can help education institutions become safer, secure, efficient and offer improved service.

  • Industry Leaders – Education industry solution providers; technology innovation fund managers.
  • Technology Leaders – Businesses that are creating IoT, Big Data solutions and technologies for the educational sector


Annually Canada spends almost $100 billion in its educational sector, Ontario spends over $30 billion on its education. Yet, latest test results show that our learning of math has decreased by 8% from the last testing. Canada is one of the highest spenders per capita on tertiary education at $20,000 per student. But, has Canadian education system kept up with time and rest of the world?

Technology is a catalyst that can transform the educational sector. Education is moving from a knowledge-transfer model to a collaborative, active, self-directed, and engaging model that helps students increase their knowledge and develop the skills needed to succeed in the “Learning Society.” Cisco predicts that worldwide, IoE in education has a 10-year net present value of US$175 billion, which will be delivered through streamlined and personalized instruction, and through the collection of data for making better decisions and reducing expenditure on instructional resources.

Technology is just one of many disruptive influences in education today and at this conference, you will learn about how IoT (Internet of Things) and Big Data tools and technologies can help educational sector become efficient.
