Learning & Schooling in the Age of Mobilism
Thursday, February 16, 2012 from 5:00 PM to 7:30 PM (EST)
Speeding past Steve Jobs’ Post-PC Era into the Age of Mobilism, we can foresee how, by 2015, each and every student will be using their own mobile computing device with those devices engendering most disruptive transformation in education in 150 years. How does that same transformation convert to the Learning and Development environment?
Learning environments will continue to move from today’s “I Teach” facilitator-centric ineffective and boring pedagogy to a “We Learn” pedagogy where the facilitator learns along with the students, mastering content and practicing the key 21st century skills. Flipping the classroom is only the beginning; mobile technologies extend the learning environment to support all-the-time, everywhere learning, to support the linking of the abstract ideas explored inside the earning environment to the real world of people, places, things outside the traditional learning environment. And, most importantly make no mistake: THIS CHANGE IS INEVITABLE.
