What and How do we Teach Generation Z?
Delivering 21st Century Skills in the Robotics Age
Technology has had a major impact on the role of teachers and the expectations of Generation Z who have never known life without ready on-line access to knowledge. Today, developments in artificial intelligence, cloud computing, video games and immersive technologies are not only capable of delivering context aware, engaging personalised learning environments, they are also increasingly used to continuously assess learners and offer adaptive learning experiences that were previously the domain of human tutors.
Now that the primary role of teachers has shifted away from knowledge dissemination towards coaching and mentoring, what technologies can best enhance and augment the role of the human tutor and what skills will be required for the 21st Century when an increasing number of knowledge profession jobs will be done by robots?
The presentation looks at not only how students and teachers will use technology for education in the 21st century but also what skills will be required in both tutors and students.
