Digital Learning Futures by Steve Wheeler

This is a great presentation delivered by Steve Wheeler at Learning Technologies 2012 in London’s Olympia on January 26, 2012. In his presentation, Steve discussed a number of possible scenarios for the adoption of digital technologies in education and training. He touched on many emerging technologies which I also think they have tremendous potentials in teaching and learning. Some of these include personal learning networks, mobile technologies, games and gamification, the use of social media in learning, the role of user generated content, the phenomenon of ubiquitous connection, and technological convergence.
