Conference The Future of Learning

Right now I visit the swedish conference Framtidens Lärande (The Future of Learning) at Nacka Strand in Stockholm. It is a great initiative which is really needed in Sweden. In my opinion the swedish development was halted when the two government agencies CFL (which I worked at) and MSU were closed last autumn. So this might be a good reboot for the future.

10.10 The first speaker was Roger Säljö, who is a professor of pedagogy. Proing for the socio-cultural learning, he tried to set the digital learning in a historical context and making a prognose for the future. According to him, the development is starting to be definable. From a text based-learning environment we are moving into a media- and device-based learning environment. People will also become more and more creative by using their knowledge in unique ways.

10.45 Kia Höök from Stockholm University shows applications that uses the whole body to control the interface. By moving, dancing or sweating these devices are used for gaming or diaries.

 11.20 Agneta Jörbeck from Förskola, Fritid, Skola in Nacka. She talked about the problems of equipping schools with computers, in a well produced seminar where she interacted with recorded films on the screen.

12.15 I visited the discussion forum “Social media as knowledge tools”. Four short themes from four guys, among others the excellent Pelle Pedagog. Lovely discussion with so many perspectives. I had to ask a little myself.

 13.15 Lunch

14.00 Bruce Dixon, Anywhere, Anytime Learning foundation talking about future learning.
