How Might Exponential Technologies Impact Teaching & Learning?
For Technology and Innovation Leaders
Technology forecasting giant Gartner recently predicted “
a virtual world of exponential change
” emerging over the next several years. Virtual and augmented reality, artificial intelligence, big data, and other exponential technologies are not just affecting businesses. They already affect our students’ lives (read: social media!) and before long they will shape the way we teach and learn.
What questions do we need to ask about exponential technologies and learning?
What can we learn now from practitioners in higher education, corporate learning, and non-profits leaders about how they are already using exponential technologies?
This workshop will include a report “from the edge of tomorrow,” a school case study, some question-storming from participants, and a panel discussion and Q&A. In an age of exponential change, the time to ask the big questions about the future of learning is now.
