The Emerging Future: Technology and Learning
The Library 2.015 Spring Summit - The Emerging Future: Technology and Learning, a half-day conversation about technology issues and trends in the future of library and information services, was held on April 30th, 2015. The Spring Summit was designed to complement the fifth annual Library 2.015 Worldwide Virtual Conference, being held on October 20th, 2015. Please register here to access the Spring Summit Archive.
The technology landscape changes rapidly, and these changes have economic, social, and ethical significance for individuals, organizations, and the entire world. The Emerging Future: Technology and Learning brings focus to the planning skills that are needed, the issues that are involved, and the current trends as we explore the potential impact of technological innovations.
This interactive session on future technology trends will present key issues faced by information professionals and educators. A goal of the Spring Summit is to provide a forum to learn about and discuss ways to prepare for the future, both professionally and organizationally. The 3-part presentation will include:
Part 1: Chasing Storms or Rainbows?
A keynote panel looks at the effects of emerging technologies on current and future learning trends.
Part 2: In the Know
A special session with three topics in succession:
- How to plan and fund new technologies
- How to stay up to date with new technologies
- A drill down on the key impact areas of new technologies
Part 3: The Here and Now
A closing panel discussion on technology and social media trends.

The Learning Revolution Project
Welcome to the Learning Revolution.
The Learning Revolution Project holds online and physical learning events, and highlights professional development opportunities from a network of 200 partners in the learning professions. The great majority of these events are free to attend. We also highlight good conversations about learning taking place between educators, learners, leaders, and others from the school, library, museum, work, adult, online, non-traditional and home learning worlds. The technologies of the Internet and the Web are reshaping when, where, and from whom we learn--and even how we think about learning. As the boundaries of these learning worlds increasingly overlap, we believe these conversations will be critical to framing and preparing for the learning revolution starting to take place.
