Participants will hear from, and discuss with, experts from learning provider organisations and the edtech industry. There will be opportunities for peer-to-peer sharing in our interactive sessions.
Climate change, conflict and economic crisis are global problems that translate into day-to-day challenges for many learners and teachers. Those learners may be the future researchers and innovators that solve the problems if we can provide them with the opportunity to do so.
The pandemic years accelerated digital transformation and, at the same time, made us reflect on the place for our own humanity in our use of, and interaction with, digital tools. We now look to technology to improve accessibility, to make our curriculum more diverse and inclusive and to aid learner health and well-being. We see that online activity reduces travel but our increasingly media rich resources have their own carbon footprint and sustainability issues. The use of virtual and extended reality tools and artificial intelligence (AI) forces us to weigh up opportunity against ethical consequences and issues of equity.
The Education Technology Summit will help delegates to understand where AV technology fits into new approaches to learning and student support.
The summit will show that with opportunity comes responsibility and highlight how education providers and tech suppliers can take decisions with regard to their impact on our people and our planet. We show the ROI from connections and compassion and inspire you with examples of the creativity that is advancing the world of learning.
The conference will be chaired by Dr Gill Ferrell. Gill has been Content Chair for ISE's education-themed conferences since 2017. She leads a learning and teaching special interest group for European universities and supports European learning providers and suppliers developing open edtech standards.
The Summit will be followed by a networking event.
