Publishing, Emerging Technologies, and Education

Moderated by: John Warren
Location: Odets (4th Floor)

Emerging technologies are impacting teaching, learning, and creative expression in K-12, higher education, and professional learning. People expect to be able to work, learn, and study at any time and wherever they want. The volume and variety of resources available on the Internet are changing the roles of educators, and student output is increasingly collaborative. Mobile computing, open content, electronic books, augmented reality, gesture-based computing, and visual data analysis are all expected to change the way teach and learn in the near or long term. New models of distribution, access, and content creation are emerging and in this climate, the role of publishers cannot help but change as well. Join the moderator and panelists from the “The Future of Digital Textbooks” session in a lively roundtable discussion of the devices, business models, and technologies impacting education and textbook publishers.
