The Future of (Digital) Learning - Keynote

“Great teachers and classrooms will not go away. Neither will physical campuses, lectures, videos, books and other traditional mediums disappear. However every one of these will be significantly affected by increasingly sophisticated uses of digital technology. This new capability to rethink learning design will redefine who, what, when and where the learner co-creates and consumes learning; it will reshape the learning experience itself and open up a new range of options for how we define the boundaries of the learning environment.” - Don Jones

Don Jones is one of, if not the best designers of business simulations in the world today.

Quotes from the Keynote

“The Future of learning will be multi-platform and massively mobile, beautiful, engaging, immersive, customized to the individual learner, available anytime and anywhere. In the workplace it will have on-the-job transfer and impact tools that translate the lessons learned to accelerate performance, enhance self-reflection and awareness and offer just-in-time reminders and personalized, smart device enabled Digital Mentor™ coaching. “

“Great teachers and classrooms will not go away, nor should they. Neither will physical campuses, lectures, videos, books and other traditional mediums disappear. They are awesome tools when used effectively. However every one of the elements of our current learning paradigm will be significantly affected by increasing sophisticated uses of digital technology. This new capability to rethink learning design will redefine who, what, when and where the learner co-creates and consumes learning; it will reshape the learning experience itself and open up a new range of options for how we define the boundaries of the learning environment.”
