Education Fast Forward - Promethean Planet

Education Fast Forward - Promethean Planet | Education Tech & Tools |
Debating the future of education with global thought leaders.


Education Fast Forward (EFF) brings together leading global experts and change agents from the world of education to discuss the topics that matter most. The forum addresses the key challenges facing governments, educators and employers both now and in the future, and aims to find practical resolutions. 


EFF8 will take place on Thursday November 21, 2013 and will be streamed live here on Promethean Planet from 12.00 until 14.30 GMT. We will debate the topic New Pedagogies – Is this the time? Join us and help us to examine teacher realities and the drive to innovate.

The learning relationship between teachers and learners is changing, and this change is beginning to drive more engaging and productive learning experiences. This new learning relationship depends on the development of new pedagogies which have the potential to drive deeper learning for every learner.


Michael Fullan and Kristen Weatherby will open this debate. Michael will start by exploring the concept of new pedagogies and how these pedagogies will use the very capacity of technology today to see learning flourish and change more than it has in the past two thousand years. Kristen will then bring her experience of running TALIS at the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) and her insights into how teachers are currently behaving in their teaching."

ghbrett's insight:

It's great to see a crowdfunding (crowdsource funding) site for Education! Have a look and see if your education or training activities might benefit from such funding or at least the exposure to this community online.
