technology supported learning and training

Taking place virtually from Nov 30 – Dec 4

Plenary with David White and Barbara Wasson: Education Futures: Data AND Creativity

Date Friday, Dec 4  Time   –   

From students’ digital skills to teachers’ pedagogical skills – how can we design and deliver education in the online learning jungle?Barbara Wasson will speak about "Data, Data, Everywhere..."
Technology that supports learning has been around since the 1960s. As technology evolved through the past decades, however, the type of data that has been able to be collected about learning has changed, as has what we can do with this data. In this talk I will explore these changes and end with the argument that what we really should do with the data is to support empowerment.David White will speak about "Cultivating Collective Creativity"
As AI, algorithms and automation continue to expand into areas that were once purely human domains of education and work, creativity becomes an increasingly valuable attribute. In this talk I will explore what we can learn from arts education to cultivate creativity online, not only in the ‘talented’ individual but as a powerful collective endeavour across any institution.
