Learning, Freedom, and the Web | Anya Kamenetz | July 9, Chicago #SCUP47

Learning, Freedom, and the Web | Anya Kamenetz | July 9, Chicago #SCUP47 | SCUP Links | Scoop.it

The continuing transformation of higher education, with the twin pressures of economics and technological innovation, will challenge colleges and universities to find new efficiencies and specialization, embrace and incorporate a student's personal learning networks and paths, blend experiential and digital approaches, and adopt free and open-source educational resources. The dialogue is an evolving one, but Kamenetz will share her initial findings, and asks you to consider the impact of tuition and student loans, as well as technology and social media, on higher education.


Anya Kamenetz is bringing an entirely unexpected perspective on the future of knowledge, talent, and innovation. An educational futurist and the rare speaker on issues facing Millennials (while actually belonging to this generation), she delivers audiences core insights into change, technology, and talent.
