The Classroom of 2018: Video (Speaking)

Back at the end of November 2013, I took part in a series of talks organised and sponsored by Zurich called ‘Future History Now’.

My talk was entitled the ‘Classroom of 2018’. The talk has now been published and you can watch it below.

In my talk I mention the need for decisions about technology that affect teaching and learning being made by a teacher, the Director of ICT for instance and not just by an IT manager. Although I didn’t say it in this talk, I want to make it clear how important IT managers / network managers are in schools. They have the technical knowledge to make things happen. I realise I may cause offence to some but that was not my intention.

I also did an interview entitled ‘What will the classroom of 2018 look like’. You can read my interview by clicking on the link below and going to page 43.

Zurich’s Future, History, Now – The Classroom of 2018

Future History Now is a series of films, articles and events designed to stimulate a positive way of thinking about and planning for our futures against the backdrop of major demographic, technological, workplace and social change.

Welcome to 2018! (From the Future, History, Now website)

I gave a talk at the first event on the 28th November in Central London on the classroom of 2018. It was a great evening that included some awesome talks.

Hopefully, there will be a video available soon.
