OEB 2017: Getting up close and personal(ized) with learning

News

Earlier this month we attended OEB – an event aimed at shaping the future of learning – and the main theme for the event was ‘Learning Uncertainty’. Currently, the education landscape is in the midst of change; there is a constant shift in the way things are being taught, learned, delivered and captured. One of the solutions that stood out as an overarching trend in this conversation, and something that we spoke to Training Journalabout, is the idea of personalized learning.

Despite sounding like a Dr Seuss character, MOOCs are actually seriously learning tech.

Micro-credentials for teacher PD: Why? What? How?

School Management

Despite the advantages, PD is a challenge for many teachers.

Parents

For educators and parents of students, understanding how working memory helps students, and how it can be improved can be incredibly helpful in assisting students to get the most out of their education.

So how can we benefit from uncertainty? How can we use volatility in our advantage? How should universities, colleges and schools adapt? And how can we learn uncertainty if the future of learning itself is unclear? These are the questions the OEB Conference is planning to ask and find answers to.

Education and Augmented Reality — Really?

Teachers

Education and Augmented Reality — Really? If you are like me, you may find yourself outwardly agreeing that AR is an exciting mega-trend, but may inwardly be questioning it’s true reality (forgive the phrase) and more importantly be weighing up its true pedagogic value. After all, a teacher’s entire objective is to augment a student’s reality — using tools as simple as blackboards or as complex as tablets.
