ANNUAL CGTRADER 
SCHOLARSHIP 2018

Technology has drastically changed the way we communicate, work and… learn.

There are many more innovative technologies entering the market - virtual and augmented reality devices, sensors of all kinds and wearables to name a few.

Discuss any specific innovation or technology in general, possible applications or your vision of the intercept of technology and education.​
