Panel 1: Teaching and Learning 3.0

Saturday September 26, 11am to 12pm

The classical image of education—a teacher writing on a blackboard in front of a class—has become outdated. Innovative technologies, such as augmented reality, tangible interaction, and tabletops, promise richer interactions and more engagement in education and learning. Technology has also led to the creation of online learning and massive open online courses (MOOCs), which allow people everywhere in the world to access any courses taught from anywhere. In this panel, experts working on different interactive educational systems will present their approach and discuss the possibilities and the risks associated to these new learning opportunities. This panel will also provide a space to discuss challenges and future avenues for such interactive educational systems.
