Conference tag: FOE2007First time here? The first stop is the Main Gathering Place.
What do you you want to explore?
Tumultuous change is creating new opportunities for schools, colleges, universities, and corporations to rethink their approaches to teaching and learning. Many buzzwords are used to describe the change: globalization, web 2.0, the world is flat, the wisdom of crowds, and the long tail.
What exists beyond the hype? What is happening to education? What will be the shape of education in the future? Answering these questions is no easy task – the change drivers have not yet settled sufficiently to reveal a clear path forward. For academics, researchers, and leaders, it is important to begin exploring the trends emerging and potential implications and directions forward. The Future of Education is a free online conference exploring trends impacting education - K-12, higher education, and corporation training.
An international group of leading thinkers and visionaries will present on topics such as knowledge and authority, technology and art, self-organized learning systems, and complexity science. Daily live discussions (which will be recorded) will be held June 4 – 8. In addition to daily keynote presentations, a series of 20 minute presentations will address how various experts perceive tomorrow's education system and processes.
To extend the live presentations, ongoing discussions will be held in Moodle – allowing conference attendees to participate actively in the conference, regardless of schedule or time zone differences.
