Huge opportunity threat

@gleonhard

A big challenge for universities: the framework is changing

Technology changes how we perceive the world

If you measure the wrong thing you do the wrong thing: GDP & GPA

Many digital natives will start to dene and shape their own degrees

@gleonhard

Education may just become like this shoe

CUSTOMIZATION

@gleonhard

BRAND BECOMES CRUCIAL

@gleonhard

The future is already here!

Everything: Connected Intelligent Real-time Personalized Cross-platform

ONLY THE BEGINNING

Everything is converging

Exponential growth of technology

@gleonhard

As educational content becomes abundant, experience is the new scarcity

Abundance

Scarcity

@gleonhard

Mobile devices have already become our external brains

Next: new extensions of man that change us

Search engines wont wait for you to ask for information.!They will know you like a friend, aware of your concerns and interests at a detailed level

@gleonhard

Automated. Intelligent. Everything.

@gleonhard

The stuff of science ctionno longer

@gleonhard

The coming Global Brain is a huge opportunity for universities

@gleonhard

GLOBAL PARADIGM SHIFT

@gleonhard

Equal access to digital resources will become a human right

Interdependence is inevitable

Business Technology Politics Culture Europe EDUCATION

Information Tsunami

Overload Everywhere

Learning: from copy & paste & memorize and downloads to ows, from ownership to access

The rise of OTT education and learning platforms will dramatically accelerate hyper-fragmentation, resulting in masses of niches and nichehits, hyper-globalization - and very fast-changing windows of monetisation

Education, Learning, Training:

dramatically increasing fragmentation, unbundling, splintering, personalisation

The future is already here!

Many nicely walled gardens will probably not be sustainable

Knowledge is not merely about information, data, facts and numbers....


Learn wisdom...?

BUT IS THIS THE LEARNING WE NEED?

The appeal of amazing free stuff paid largely with attention & personal data is mostly (but not entirely) temporary:

If you dont pay you are the content
