About the Class

This presentation will explore networks as agents that have altered many of the assumptions held by traditional education. The core roles of institutions, curriculum, and educators are altered when control over conversations and information access shifts to learners. For many educators, this change is first reflected in innovative pedagogies (wall-less classrooms and global conversations) and personal professional development. However, the impact of emerging technologies and networks are much greater than only altering teaching. What will education look like when we shed the assumptions formed during the pre-digital era and adjust institutions to address needs of learners for a world of growing complexity and connectedness?
