So what is the future of
      learning?
Before we look to the
future, we need to look
      to the past...

We need to ensure
   easy and cheap
connectivity, through
     wifi or 3G

We need to ensure
 long battery life.

Do you want one
device which does four
things badly or a device
 which does one thing
         well?
Change?
Management of
  Change?
So you plan to take
small steps, one at a
       time....
What do you do if a
 step is missing?
What do you do if a
 step is broken?
Isn’t it quicker to avoid
  the steps and jump
          down?
We need to be
responsive to changes
  in technology and
        society.
We need to focus on
  activity and not
 creating content.
We need to build in
    flexibility.
We need to share
resources, context and
      activities.
We need to
collaborate and work
      together.
We need to reward
and ensure innovation.
We need to encourage
 experimentation.
We need to change the
   way we assess.
It’s all about changing
      the culture.
Use technology as a
 solution not just
 because it is cool
    technology.
The future?
The future is learners.
Learners choosing how
 and where they learn.
Using a wide range of
   resources and
    technologies.
Mobile technologies are
 not just for the young.
Not all young people
 are “digital natives”.
The term is not helpful.
Learners want to learn
 where they want to.
It’s all about the
learners, young old,
       whoever.
Learners
Any questions?
The future...
