Is The Future in the ‘Everything’? Source: Gartner webinar
Focus This is a workshop for those dreamers and futurists among us! It's a chance to have fun, share ideas and 'augment' your own points of reference: convenient descriptors on the imagined educational landscape ahead, given the rate of change in ICT and the social and economic pressures on our schooling systems. Take a look at some resources for furthering your interest. Discuss with others, maybe stand on your soapbox a little (without getting inflammatory), collaborate on portraying a possible landscape augmented with our collective thoughts. What do you think is ahead? Let's talk :-) This workshop will take participants through a range of considerations, utilising web resources and online collaboration. We'll examine ideals, limitations, ways forward and indulge in some hypothetical scenarios...and have fun getting to know each other along the way.
