Why we need to consider the human-computer interface for future learning technologies

Why we need to consider the human-computer interface for future learning technologies

This video was recorded at 1st Internet of Education Conference - The role of Computer Science in the Internet of Education, Ljubljana 2013. There has been a lot of excitement recently about how new technologies have the potential to transform learning. The latest, MOOCs, have begun to offer online classes that are accessible to anyone. At the same time, a diversity of innovative learning apps have been developed for tabletops, tablets and phones, supporting new forms of learning – mobile, collaborative and situated. New electronic toolkits and programming environments are also emerging intended to introduce new generations to coding and computation in creative and engaging ways – that go way beyond Logo. Never before has there been so much opportunity to make learning accessible, immersive, interactive, exciting, provocative and enjoyable. To realize the true potential of the Internet of Education, however, requires designing interfaces and apps that not only match learners' needs and abilities but also encourages collaboration, mindful engagement, conversational skills and the art of reflection.
