The Future of Learning

For the past decade, technology has transformed schools throughout the United States and around the world.  Indeed, technology has changed the way our students learn and the way we teach.  Learning will never be the same.

Steve Wheeler, Associate Professor of learning technology in the Faculty of Education at the University of Plymouth, recently gave an interesting presentation at the Learning Skills Group Conference in Olympia, London.  His presentation, entitled “New Technology and the Future of Learning” attempted to gaze (tentatively) into the near future, and to ask questions such as “what will be the new roles of trainers and developers in the next few years?’ and ‘what new literacies will learners need to capitalize on new technologies?”

Mr. Wheeler’s presentation is outstanding with many insightful statements and interesting visuals.  I agree with him that the future of learning is open, social, personal, mobile, augmented, visual, and connected.  You can learn more about Steve Wheeler’s presentation embedded below.
