EDU-FICTION 2030 What Will the Web Bring?

With the assumption that the future is not something we step on but rather the result of projected ideas sustained with effort and work, we have put together an expert panel envisioning higher education scenarios in 2030. For this committed exercise, we have invited four renowned experts with different backgrounds to explore socio-economic, technological, and pedagogical dimensions of learning in the future. Based on actual trends in open, digital, mobile and networked learning, we will engage in a productive discussion where all participants will be invited to express their thoughts together.
