New Economy New Rules - Technology's Impact on Education and the Way We Think and Learn
What: New Economy New Rules: Technology's Impact on Education and the Way We Think and Learn presented by TechPoint, Barnes & Thornburg LLP and WGU Indiana
When: June 7, 2013 | 8:00 a.m. (ET) Registration and Continental Breakfast | 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. (ET) Presentation
Program Overview: Today’s high school sophomores were born 15 years ago – a birthday they share with Google. It’s hard to imagine a 15-year-old changing the world (and Google didn’t do it on its own), but most of us can’t fathom life without the omnipresent primary colors at our fingertips.
The impact of technology on education is equally inescapable. Technology has done more than change the way things are done in the classroom; the students themselves are fundamentally changed, and the way they think and learn is different in the era of information abundance.
- How is education reform driving new demands for technology?
- What opportunities exist and how are they being addressed in the marketplace?
- What are biggest misconceptions about education technology?
- How can tech firms break in to the education technology space?
- Where is tech making a difference in education and where is it being misused or wasting funds?
- What is the next big leap for schools? How is this tech revolution (tablets, digital texts and social media harnessing) impacting students, the way they learn and their readiness for the workplace?
Join us on June 7 for a look at 21st century thinking and the latest trends and challenges facing education. Our panelists will present information about their own tech ed innovations and share perspectives on the present and future impact of technology on how we think and learn.
