Today's learners face a whole new set of formal and informal contexts in light of the digital age which can make personalized learning more challenging. Since synchronous and asynchronous learning environments have individual strengths and weaknesses, finding a balance is key.
Self-taught computer expert, author, entrepreneur, and educator Lynda Weinman investigates how educators can nurture passionate learners and create a future where initiative, creativity, responsibility, critical thinking and collaboration all coexist.
Her presentation "Personalized Learning in the Digital Age" will focus on the significance of online learning tools and techniques in an increasingly busy world. This session will provide the audience with keen insight into how online seminars, classes, and other programs will continue to revolutionize personalized learning for students of all ages. The presentation will also examine the steps educators can take to work with evolving technologies to foster modern learning environments as well as ways to prepare students.
