Opening Plenary OEB23

Date Thursday, Nov 23  Time   –    Room Potsdam I

In OEB 2023's theme "The Learning Futures We Choose," we confront a pressing question: Will our digital evolution enhance human potential or eclipse it? Dive into our opening plenary where three luminaries offer insights into the heart of this technological transformation.

Eric Sheninger advocates for a 'Disruptive Thinking' pedagogy, urging educators to foster resilient learners capable of navigating an unpredictable digital landscape. Helen Lee Bouygues emphasizes 'Critical Thinking in the Data Revolution,' shedding light on the imperative of discerning truth in a data-saturated world. Finally, Prof Luciano Floridi delves into 'Living in the Infosphere,' exploring the profound implications of a hyper-connected reality on education, ethics, and human equity.

Join us in sculpting a future where technology amplifies, not undermines, human agency, integrity, and connection. Your role in choosing the direction of our digital destiny starts here.
