What does automation, personalisation and adaptive really mean in the context of learning? In this Headliner session we’re set to explore the future of learning and the role of digital technology in shaping our lives, our work and our world views.

Three thought leaders: an advocate for learning structures that serve individuals (and not vice versa), a pioneer in adaptive learning technology and a human centred designer for learning will be coming together for the first time in an online discussion to dissect these important topics. They will be sharing their insight into how we might utilise digital technology to shape, design and define the educational systems of the future. We’ll also be exploring what they see as the important considerations for educational leaders in today's world and clearing up some common misconceptions on what automation, personalisation and adaptive really mean for learning
