Epic to host mobile learning debate at Learning Technologies
Following its inaugural e-learning debate at the Oxford Union in September, e-learning provider Epic is staging another debate in the seminar theatre at Learning Technologies, London Olympia, on Wednesday 27th January.
The motion is: 'This house believes that learning on smart phones is less about new technology than it is about a new approach to pedagogy'.
Professors John Traxler and Mike Sharples will lead the arguments For and Against, accompanied by Kim Whittlestone of the Royal Veterinary College and Dr Mike Short of O2.
Dr Naomi Norman, Epic's director of learning, said: "It's very exciting to bring together these four international experts in mobile learning to debate what I believe is one of the hottest learning topics of the moment. If the last debate at the Oxford Union is anything to go by, it will be an enjoyable, controversial, insightful, and thoroughly worthwhile experience."
The debate, which takes place from 11.30 until 12.30 pm on the first day of Learning Technologies, is free to attend, although visitors are advised to arrive early to be sure of a seat. If you're unable to attend, Epic says full details will be available at www.elearningdebate.com.
Returning for its eleventh year, the 2010 Learning Technologies conference and exhibition takes place on 27 and 28 January at London Olympia 2. Focussing on technology supported workplace learning, the event is being co-located with the new Learning and Skills 2010 exhibition taking place on the ground floor at Olympia.
Epic will be on stand 54 at the Learning Technologies exhibition where they will be distributing their new 'Smart Phone Learning' White Paper.
