Personalised learning: Is EdTech up to it?

Intelligent tutoring systems provide unprecedented opportunities to respond to every learner’s individual needs. But just how capable are these technologies at simulating the behaviours of a human tutor? How personal can a virtual learning experience ever be for a student? And what does it all mean for teachers? This talk reviews the opportunities and threats posed by these technologies and, in doing so, brings the human dimension of learning into sharp focus.

What will you get out of this session?
Attendees will be challenged to think about the human elements of personalised learning, and the extent to which they are served by technology.
