How can we (digitally) relearn and keep learning? Research & Education presents intergenerational concepts, ideas and projects from the areas of education and science. What topics should make the jump out of the laboratories and clusters of excellence onto the stages and into (other) people’s heads? From digital literacy to open science, from science over the humanities and social science all the way to smart boards, and from information science to liquid democracy in schools. Hack the ivory tower and the classroom!

    Learning technologies are the future of society. Some argue that they will become obsolete, but we believe that they will play a vital role in our daily lives. Learning technologies (or edtech) may not take the traditional application format on your mobile device in ten years, but instead, be integrated into your work life and personal life as wearable or even embedded devices.

    We have seen a jump to virtual reality and augmented reality followed just a step behind. What is the future? An exploration of what we have learned and what we have to learn about learning and teaching in a digital age. A session for anyone interested in changing the face of learning.

In order to make that relationship more human, we started to work with physical data visualization in the context of experience design. In this talk, we will present our work, both in terms of workshops we organized and collaborative dataviz pieces we produced.

    There is an incredible opportunity to build new and interesting ways to learn together online. MOOCs dominate the conversation, but only scratch the surface of what is possible.

    Massive open online courses will disrupt higher education by putting unprecedented pressure on universities, both financially and in terms of quality (or the lack thereof). But without a clear goal for the purpose of higher education, that disruption is bound to leave a pile of educational rubble, and us none the wiser.
