Oct. 17, 2018
4:15 PM-5:15 PM
The world of education is changing rapidly. There are many uncertainties like the effect of new educational insights and ideas, the changing balance between informal and formal learning, the costs and value of degrees, the motivation to teach as a teacher, the motivation to learn as a learner….and then there is the possibility of a huge impact of technology… How will all these variables work out in the future? Will the education system, as we know it today, still exist in years to come? Will new technologies like augmented and virtual reality, learning bots and new mobile devices improve learning experiences? How will the future teacher and a future learner look like?
