This Open Class will discuss global perspectives on the future of learning. How do americans, chileans, kiwis, australians, indians, koreans, south africans learn? and what innovations are being build by them? for which purposes?
We will amongst other things, discover the cases of micro-schools and project-based-learning schools in the USA, see how chilean kids learn science with their mobiles, learn about the innovative pedagogy of a cluster of schools in new zealand that uses tech as a tool to enhance learning and get students out of poverty, look at how australian schools put teachers at the forefront of school innovation, see that flipping the classroom helps korean students be more engaged in the classroom, discover how artificial intelligence can bridge the english learning gap in India and how a South African start-up uses adaptive learning technologies to personalize maths and science learning.
For our 7th Open Class and the first one of this new accademic year, we will have the chance to welcome Svenia Busson, the co-founder of the Edtech World Tour a global study on Education Innovation and Edtech she undertook with Audrey Jarre.
