The world of education is rapidly evolving. New organizations, such as Khan Academy and Coursera, and acronyms, such as MOOC, are springing up almost daily. The promise of a truly technology-enabled classroom is more real than ever. At the heart of this promise is a learning environment that relies less on textbooks, workbooks, and chalkboards and more on interactive, online, and social learning. Yet the marketplace of ideas is crowded and some big questions and challenges remain.
What types of learning technologies actually work for students? What do students and teachers need to help them learn and teach? What does the technology-enabled classroom mean for teachers and parents? How will the classroom of 2020 look? And most importantly, how do we evaluate what works and what doesn’t?
In this session, the panelists will address these questions and more in addion to helping you separate hype from real learning.
