Imagine Life-Long Learning
From Artificial Intelligence and digitalization of work, to Big Data and Human Interaction in school: Technology is changing education and the way we think about it. Across the range of theories and practice, some predict the doom of education. Others think digital technologies are not a big change factor. If these questions interest you, we think you should come to our 8th annual World Learning Summit. You´ll met international thought leaders, enjoy the benefits of a not too large conference in a friendly place. Our goal is simple: To create a community of interacting life-long learners and educators interested in designs, critiques, cultures and potentials behind new media and learning technologies.
About the World Learning Summit:
Every year we host 3-5 keynotes, with ample time for panel discussions and one-to-one conversations. Our past keynotes include world-leading academics, as well as entrepreneurs and policy-changers.
A feature of our summits is our insistence on mixing entrepreneurship with academics. Our workshops will include maker-oriented meetings points also in 2017. WLS-entrepreneur in residence 2017 is worth your time.
WLS offers full double-blind review of scientific papers for publication and PhD project papers in progress. Our summit proceedings are accredited as Level 1 in Norway and will offer full means of same-year publishing.
Digital learning designs and transfomations
Scholarly papers and innovation designs of a more practical nature fuse in our explorations of education technologies in use. Media theories, pedagogy and a range of disciplinary angles shed light on what works.
Digitalization of work and lifelong learning
Digital disruption is all about changing boundaries and the restructuring of social interactions. A key to future learning will be our ability to connect education, learning and digital transformations of work in new ways.
Networked globalized online distance learning
The coming of globally networked society is a change factor in education on many levels; we travel more, education formats and styles are being globalized. The importance of "being there" is - in earnest - not that clear.
