SYNOPSIS

The creative disruption of classical business models while letting new business models prosper in our digital world is a promising mindset that is not always easy to understand, learn and apply. The “digital revolution” brings huge challenges and opportunities alike to the education industry. However, despite its goal to prepare young people to move society forward, education was rarely at the forefront in reaping the benefits of digital innovation.

10:30 – 10:45  Coffee break

Our project manager, Annemie Van den Dries  will be “hanging” around to listen to projects and ideas for the last call of the Erasmus+ programme

10:45 – 11:45  Presentation by Mr. Bruno Bevernaegie , ICT staff member at University College Ghent, Belgium

Present-day students were born in a digital world. More and more teachers would like to respond to this and experiment with new educational methods such as blended learning or with new learning materials such as web lectures, knowledge clips, online courses etc… . Lectures, books and courses do not have to be banned yet, but they will remain only one of the components in the mix of blended learning.

Often external conditions such as large groups, working students, simultaneous classes, … force teachers to adapt their lessons to new circumstances.

Some teachers feel they have to follow suit but they do not know how. Sometimes they are blinded by expensive MOOCs made by prestigious universities, but small can also be beautiful. Digital solutions can help you tackle these external problems. From a didactically point of view they will not only facilitate your teaching, they will certainly lead to better learning outcomes for all target groups.

11.45- 12.45  Paper session 1 & 2

Our project manager, Annemie Van den Dries  will be “hanging” around to listen to projects and ideas for the last call of the Erasmus+ programme

14:00 – 15:15  Workshop 1 by Bruno Bevernaegie (ICT staff member at University College Ghent, Belgium)

Bob Dylan was one of the first to know. The times, they are changing. When you entered any classroom in 1977, you would not hear much except for the teacher’s voice and pens scratching on paper. Nowadays, in 2019, one expects more from modern teaching.

There are a lot of possibilities to enhance interaction and to ensure students’ minds do not wander. In this hands-on workshop, you learn how to use online applications that invite students to actively contribute to the learning process.  These interactive learning activities can be presented in the form of  a quiz, a brainstorm, a survey, … With their smartphone students access the application and consequently the beamer shows the results in real time.
(Please bring your own device, preferably a notebook/laptop)

15:15 – 15:30 Coffee break

15:30 – 16:00 EAPRIL presentation by Dr. Rebecca Eliahoo 

An exploration of case studies by mentors in education, training and professional development.

Dr Rebecca Eliahoo is a tutor and trainer specialised in teacher education, mentoring and professional development.  She is a Board member of the European Association for Practitioner Research on Improving Learning (EAPRIL) and a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. 

 Organizations are increasingly in need of effective change management methodologies because of the introduction of new technology, new models of pedagogy; government and regulatory changes; and a greater diversity of student cohorts. This qualitative study explores the dilemmas faced by new mentors working in education and training in England. It analyses critical incidents (Tripp, 2012) taken from their everyday practice whilst mentors were supporting new practitioners.                                           The study categorizes different types of critical incidents that mentors encountered and describes the strategies and rationales mentors used to support men tees and (indirectly) their learners and colleagues. The study explores ways in which mentors’ own values, beliefs and life experiences affected their mentoring practice.  

 Methodology  As part of a specialist master’s-level professional development module, 21 mentors wrote about two of their pedagogical experiences which became short case studies of critical incidents. The mentors were asked to justify the rationale for their interventions and demonstrate their own professional development in mentoring. Critical incidents were used as units of analysis and categorized thematically. 

Findings The research highlighted the complex nature of decision-making and the potential for professional learning within a mentoring relationship.  Mentors most frequently cited the controversial nature of peer observation; the mentor’s role in mediating professional relationships; the importance of maintaining a professional disposition; and the need to support new practitioners so that they can use effective behavior management strategies.  

Key words: mentoring, critical incidents, teacher education, professional development  

16:15  – 17:15 Paper session 3 & 4

Subject: Factors that affect ICT usage in higher education –  Mr. Ioannis Kazanidis, Mr. Ioannis Petasakis, Mr. Sotirios Kontogiannis and  Mr.Stavros Valsamidis

DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION – CHALLENGES FOR WORK AND EDUCATION

 

SYNOPSIS

The creative disruption of classical business models while letting new business models prosper in our digital world is a promising mindset that is not always easy to understand, learn and apply. The “digital revolution” brings huge challenges and opportunities alike to the education industry. However, despite its goal to prepare young people to move society forward, education was rarely at the forefront in reaping the benefits of digital innovation.

Today, education can learn from the failures and success of those industries that have opened their doors for digital transformation earlier. This is the way to benefit most of data driven strategies, innovation and transformation. Multiple examples of work from digital giants like Google, Amazon, and even from public organizations and federal governments all show the way to success: “Focus on your customer, not on your business”.

Today, ever more schools and universities have discovered the benefits of digital innovation and go for drastic changes. In the next 10 years, we are likely to see a complete transformation of modern education. These are the most promising trends and challenges of the digital revolution for education:

  •         focus on “learning people”, not on teachers or institutions
  •         personalized, blended and deep learning
  •         Artificial Intelligence (AI)
  •         Augmented (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR)
  •         transformation of classrooms into innovative learning spaces and platforms
  •         gamification and gaming technology
  •         commitment to cyber security and data protection (GDPR)

The basic needs of human beings do not change in the digital world. However, what will change are the methods of how we take decisions that are ever more driven by smart data and business intelligence. Ultimately, the beauty of digital business and artificial intelligence at it’s best is that this technology does not aim to replace employees and teachers, but to complement and support them. There is much hope that the education market is increasingly aware of above challenges and asks the right questions that ultimately lead towards a “happy end” of the digital transformation.
