About the Workshop

The life of a 21st century learner is largely influenced by the Social, Mobile and Cloud technology. The emergence of “Analytics and Big data” has transformed the usage of

these technologies and created the SMAC learner. When these new-age learners look for learning, they go to Google, YouTube, TED talks, Khan Academy, and, for the last couple of years, MOOCs! Increasingly, these learners want their learning experiences to match the pace and style of their life.

 This discussion shall cover the characteristics of SMAC learner, look at aspects of learning design that influence the SMAC experience and formats of learning. We will also discuss futuristic tools and formats suitable for such learning and education needs.

Who Should Attend
