Event Overview
How will education and technology change in the future?

This interactive session takes participants through the leading forces reshaping higher education and the digital world.  Some of those powerful and intersecting trends stem directly from educational technology, such as the New Generation Digital Learning Environment (NGDLE) and the impact of developing and emerging technologies, like automation, blockchain, and mixed reality.  Other change drivers are found in education’s vital contexts, including maroeeconomics, demographics, culture, and policy.  All of these trends are documented.

This session is based on major research projects, including the presenter’s Future Trends in Technology and Education (FTTE) report and his forthcoming book (from Johns Hopkins University Press).  It will be thoroughly interactive, mixing presentations with facilitated audience discussion.
