2020 VISION: THE FUTURE OF EDUCATION THROUGH TECHNOLOGY

F. O'Carroll

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (IRELAND)
Brief Description:
Technology is remaking the world and changing the way human beings create, communicate, organize, share information, and learn. As a result of this sea change, our education system is at the beginning of a true revolution. This session provides a look at the changes beginning to emerge and a preview of what we think education can and will be in the future.

Overall Description:
What would public education look like if we invented it today? Certainly it would embrace the many ways in which technology has transformed how we all create, communicate, organize, share information, and learn. Today, with the power of technology, new integrated offerings and tools can unite teacher training and assessment, and online curriculum content for educators, parents and administrators to support and enrich today’s generation of learners.

In this presentation, Fiona O'Carroll, Executive Vice President for Digital Products Research & Development at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, will provide a look at the trends taking shape in our education system and a glimpse of what the future of education can look like. Key discussion points will include:

• How greater adoption of technology is opening new doors for tools that support the evolution of digital education.
• How digital platforms and curricula can provide cognitively rich, differentiated teaching and learning resources that boost personalized learning and increase student achievement.
• New possibilities for educators to enhance classroom content and collaboration, and make curricula available to all students and teachers from one central learning hub.
• Integrating digital content as a learning tool across an entire school district, for example, teachers and students gain unlimited opportunities for focused, efficient instructions that connect and align resources to the district benchmarks. A true district-wide democratization of education can result.

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt is a global education leader and has been working with educators across the world to embrace the ways in which new technologies can change the way people learn and unlock every child’s potential. The company’s Learning Village portal, for example, enhances the teaching and learning experience by truly connecting educators to best practices, instructional strategies, lesson plans and resources for measurable student achievement.
