Intelligent software, virtual reality and the power of analytics are already transforming learning within businesses and schools.

But with a myriad of technologies, how do we identify the true game changers from hype and hyperbole? How can new systems and emerging digital trends improve the experience of the learner, the role of the educator and change the learning environment itself?

As the future becomes the present, we’ll explore how to combine the best of both on and offline learning, how to truly personalise education and how to use automation and data to dramatically improve the role of the teacher.

Research: Using machines to complement the work of humans

In the workplace, machines will complement, not replace, humans. We need to develop the skills that help us seize the opportunities and overcome the limitations they present us.

Hear from Stephen Johnson at Forecastle Research as he explores how today’s changing workforce will use technology to complement and extend human capability.

Stephen explores three areas that will require digital improvement:

  • Digital literacy - ensuring people of all ages interact successfully with technology
  • Hybrid learning - improving learning effectiveness and efficiency
  • Augmentation - learning to effectively combine humans and machines.
