KMi’s Alan Fletcher was invited by LearnDirect to speak at the Skills and Learning workshop at GoOn ND11.
GoON:ND11: the 6th National Digital Conference on 11th & 12th May 2011 at Old Billingsgate was the largest gathering and online participation to date of partners across the UK who want to work together to inspire, encourage and support millions more people online.
The Learning and Skills workshop focussed on how the UK can leverage technology to develop a 21st century competitive skills base. It considered the power of technology to transform education and skills, looking at the impact of both formal and increasingly informal digital learning opportunities.
The theme reviewed how those working across the spectrum of ages to promote 21st Century learning and skills can better understand the role of technology to drive efficiencies, to engage with audiences and to develop better structures for personalised learning and more innovative and effective ways to enable transformation through learning.
