Hobsons is sponsoring the annual EduTech conference in Brisbane on 30 May – 1 June.
Hobsons' Director, Higher Education Product and Service, APAC shares thoughts on launching Naviance in Australia.
Innovation is an interesting concept, perhaps a little like other big ideas such as ‘excellence’ and ‘beauty’ where each person enjoys a slightly different flavour, but all know it when they see it. If people had to define it in the abstract, they would never reach a suitable agreement. People agree that innovations are new ideas, approaches, products or processes; they often help society do, see or think in new ways. Against the backdrop of current norms, innovations standout as ‘different’. But difference is not all that is required to make something truly innovative.
We are excited to offer Naviance by Hobsons, a global postsecondary planning tool already used by 8 million students worldwide to explore in meaningful ways the connection between education and careers as they progress through school.
