Living in Tech City: 50+ Transformational Learning Technology Trends and Innovations
This presentation is geared toward trainers, managers, instructional designers, educators, learners, practitioners and government officials who share an interest in contemporary advances in learning technologies that are shaping training and education for today’s and tomorrow’s learners.
A consummate speaker, Professor Bonk will discuss technologies and Web resources that have emerged over the past few years and have transformed corporate training and higher education. Among these technological tools are smartphones and smart watches, digital course resources, social books, social media, online talking dictionaries, video walls, virtual assistants and Web conferencing.
Concurrently, the world is witnessing an exponential growth in enrollment in online or virtual learning, blended learning and massive open online courses (MOOCs), as well as the use of collaborative tools in these e-learning courses.
While the 50+ learning technology trends and innovation are exciting and highly transformative, there are pros and cons in how each of them is used in different training and education spaces. Bonk’s session helps the audience to get a firm grasp on the changing landscape and how best to leverage these learning technology trends and innovation to maximise learning effectiveness and organisational performance.
To make this forum more meaningful and engaging, Professor Bonk will first give a presentation followed by a dialogue session. There will be ample opportunities for participants to ask questions and learn from the speaker’s deep knowledge and experience. Among other important questions, this exciting session promises to make sense of when best to use different technologies in different settings.
