Abstract: This session is geared toward trainers, managers, instructional designers, educators, learners, practitioners, and government officials who share an interest in contemporary advances in learning technologies that are shaping education for today’s and tomorrow’s learner. In this session, Professor Curt Bonk of Indiana University will discuss dozens of technologies and Web resources that have emerged over the past few years to transform corporate training as well as higher education and most other learning settings. Among these technologies tools are smartphones and smart watches, digital course resources, social books, social media, online talking dictionaries, video walls, virtual assistants, and Web conferencing. Also exploding at this time is enrollment in online or virtual learning, blended learning, massive open online courses (MOOCs), and the use of collaborative tools in such e-learning courses. While these 50+ technology trends and innovation are exciting and highly transformative, each has pros and cons in how they are used in different training and education spaces. To make it more personal, this session will, in part, be a presentation, and, in part, a conversation about learning technology trends and innovations. As such, there will be much opportunity for question and answer as well as personal reflection.
