Short presentations & panel discussion
Moderator: Sandra Kucina Softic, EDEN Vice-president, SRCE
Education and learning are changing and developing on the basis of a range of drivers and technology is among the most prominent of these. Educators will increasingly find themselves in an environment in which there is an overload of information, and so their tasks will, among other things, move to evaluating information effectively, selecting teaching content wisely and helping learners to cope with information of different value and reliability. The Council of the EU recently acknowledged that, together with literacy and numeracy, a digital competence is crucial for accessing and progressing in the labour market and engaging in further education and training. In a changing world and a more unpredictable future, lifelong learning is becoming a central element in people’s lives, and digital learning is in many cases already making this more accessible, flexible and cheaper. As open education models grow in prominence, efforts should move towards making teacher-developed content and materials more widely available. Join us in the discussion on future of education in next decade.
