Lundi 20 juin au Collège de France dans le cadre du Festival Futur en Seine,

Digital technologies are supporting a revolution in the way we learn, work and live. Thanks to the Internet we now have a mass of information at our finger tips, we can connect to friends wherever we are in the world, and we can actively participate with our own thoughts and creations.
What we need to learn, how we learn and how we apply our learning have changed considerably. The core competences of reading, writing and arithmetic remain as important as ever. But we also need to know how to use technology to work in teams, to communicate with people from different cultures and to be active citizens a digital world. We need to be digitally competent.
Technology can help us to learn better and it can help us to apply what we have learned more effectively. However, on its own it is just a tool and we need to change the fundamental processes of learning if we are to exploit its advantages. And we should see learning not as one-off activity that we do at school, but rather as a continuous process that we do throughout life in order to remain creative and innovative.
This presentation will look at the work of the European Commission on the use of ICT for education and training. It will address the policy imperatives for all citizens to be digitally literate, highlight the importance of digital competence for innovation and review how ICT is helping us to learn more effectively. Projects from the EU’s Lifelong Learning Programme will be described as practical examples of how we can innovate to learn and learn to innovate.http://www.futur-en-seine.fr/en/conferences-2/brian-holmes/
