The Observatory+The Laboratory+The Training+The EduTechno+
Objective

The EduTechno+ (Educational Technology Plus) community aims at initiating, facilitating, and sustaining conversations and exchanges between national and international researchers, practitioners, and students in education, educational technology, and emerging and disruptive technology, and experts in labour markets and the future of work, on innovative pedagogical practices in digital contexts to prepare today and tomorrow’s workforce for the 4th industrial revolution.

The EduTechno+ gatherings

To note, the Chair wants to express by adding the “+” the collaboration between the human and the machine/technology to lead to an augmented intelligence of the human.

Discussions about Teaching and Learning during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Until the first few weeks of March 2020, no one could have imagined the magnitude of change that the COVID-19 pandemic would impose on educational institutions.

All aspects of teaching and learning were disrupted and the digital transformation of education was accelerated.

Discover the chairholder’s meetings with educational technology experts with whom she has been conversing about teaching and learning in a time of pandemic.

Innovation in Pedagogical Approaches

Designing inclusive, equitable and transformative learning experiences for a labour market in the 4th Industrial Revolution and the post-COVID era is challenging educators to rethink their pedagogical approaches.

Learn about the achievements and innovations in pedagogical practices of educators and educational technology experts who met with the Chair.

EduTechno Scoops!

In its vision of equipping students and workers to perform in the digital age job market, the Chair acts as a link between the university and professionals innovating in educational technologies.

Discover the tech scoops revealed by the invited specialists on their advances in emerging technologies.

EduTechno Chats!

The TechnoEdu Chats are multimodal meetings designed and facilitated by edtech students for edtech students.

Before they became students, they all had expertise from various fields. They are rich with experiences and interests they wish to share with our community.

Each chat focuses on a topic related to Educational Technology.

Join the chats to explore new discussions, clarify questions about your current or future role in instructional and learning experience design, and contribute to our collective knowledge !

Coffee Breaks about Lifelong Learning for the Future of Work!

Addressing the challenge of developing the skills of today’s and tomorrow’s workforce to collaborate in a digital and hybrid context and to perform successfully and in an ethical, critical, responsible, and sustainable manner using machines and AI has become a global priority for educational institutions and workplaces for the digital shift and post-COVID recovery.

Explore chats around lifelong learning, challenges at the individual, organizational, and societal levels, and solutions to consider to better meet the needs of future workers.

I had a blast facilitating the discussion around lifelong learning for the post-pandemic era with extraordinary people, experts in their respective fields, investing serious efforts in helping our societies become lifelong learning ones. 

Below is a sneak peek of what was shared but MAKE SURE to watch the whole video. I guarantee you, it is totally worth your time.

"The educational institutions do not have a monopoly over learning and education, they need to see themselves as part of a bigger ecosystem of lifelong learning"
"The modern place of work is always a place of learning"
"A digital workplace is a place where learning is both essential, but also encouraged, and facilitated"
"Partnerships are at the heart of lifelong learning societies"
"Lifelong learning is not just adult learning, early childhood education is as important in this because many of the social and emotional skills that make us successful as adults are the ones we learn very hard early on in our lives - early years are becoming more important in the lifelong society"
"The biggest blockage to lifelong learning is that people do not see their skills"
"How can we build a stronger currency or skills currency that people can accumulate?" 
Moving from learning to work TO learning is the work
"Learning is social, it is NOT transactional"
"Currently, lifelong learning works for the highly-skilled, we must reach the people who need that training"
"The worker of the future is human"
"We won't compete as teachers with the kind of adaptivity of artificial intelligence in sort of making learning more adaptive, but that will make the role of teachers far more important as a teacher of tomorrow."
