SPEAKER SESSIONS

Future Learning

26 February 2019 | 14:00 - 14:30 | English | Cyberstudents - what are they and how will we teach them?

Technology is not only an integral part of the classroom in many schools throughout the world, but has now penetrated all areas of life. Increasingly our interaction with machines is deeply personal, and is changing us not only as learners, but as a species. It’s not enough to use new technology to support old ways of teaching, learning and human interaction. We have to rethink our whole approach to education, drawing lessons from the past as well as examining the future possibilities of human-machine and human-human interaction. This presentation will examine some of the real educational and social challenges posed by personal devices, Artificial Intelligence and the rise of the Cyberstudent.
