Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

For better and for worse, technology has copied the keys, taken over the spare room and disrupted all aspects of our lives, and education has not emerged unscathed: From classroom to boardroom, airline lounges to late-nights cramming in a coffee shop, student fairs to convocation, from how we engage, for how long, through what medium, with what content, with what motivation and with whom. Research, application, teaching, learning, training, marketing, recruitment, admissions, data, tracking, retention, accreditation, credit, recognition, service, administration, transparency, communication. This presentation will be based on a review of global research from the education technology field, and explore this influence and disruption and invite discussion on ways forward.
