F1 How Technology Is Changing the Future of Education
2:45 PM - 3:45 PM Wednesday, October 29
Being a tenured professor for over 30 years, and a part of the education community for decades, has made one thing perfectly clear to Allison Rossett: It’s time for a change. Allison isn’t the only one who thinks change is overdue in education. The President, Bill Gates, the Lumina Foundation, and others all think so too. They all make a case for WHY change must come to universities, the professoriate, and by extension, corporate education. In this session you will explore the more important question related to educational change: How to do it. You will discuss what we can do to change the future of education and examine technology’s important role in changing the structure and culture of education. You will gain an understanding of the forces that will impact the changes coming to educators, universities, and other learning entities near you.
