Future of Learning Conference Day One morning sessions

These are a few of my notes from the conference. Well worth going to - the world is changing and we need to keep up!

Day One - Opening - Cheryl Doig and Hamish Duff

See the exponential rise of technology. Some people don't know that exists
X shaped learner -human and technology

Opportunity to learn is important. Everyone has the opportunity to learn
Optimistic and idealistic - need to be this way
If we want to adapt, we need to change education. Need to help educators to embrace the new technologies. Want to bring everyone together to change
Students need to have hope for a better future


Automation Flexibility Globalisation,
What will the pace of change be, rather than will automation happen?
What will it mean if we collaborate rather than compete in Globalisation?
What are we doing in education to facilitate and accelerate learning?
Bilingual skills and cultural intelligence really important

Can they solve problems?
2017 Workplaces saw skills as equal with qualifications but now "We will recruit for mindset and we will train for skill"
Want people who can speak, who can argue. want people who can get up and present ideas
By 2030

30% more time learning on the job

26% more time engaging in self directed work
There is more complexity in the world and we need more complex solving skills

Education, need to take courses that are relevant to them. Not enough yet though. Need to have ways to learn differently. Need to cater to different needs

Students organising their own thing, through Sam's course on how to be a volunteer. Let students do things
Create space for students to experiment
One thing you could add to your schooling:

Less bubble wrap -how do you deal with confrontation. No one says "people are going to be mean "
Comments -get a loved one to read them and pull out the top 5 nice ones. Cyberbullying
