EdTech Revolution: How Technology is Changing the Way We Learn

This week, 16:1 is asking big questions about how technology is evolving classroom learning. From the unsolved problem of search (just Google it!) to 1:1 device programs, from the possibilities of virtual reality to the intricacies of ChatGPT and its competitors: we’re analyzing current trends, platforms popular with students in 2023, and what might come in the future as we brace for a digital dystopia potentially populated with deep fakes.

Correction: During the show, the number of circulations of digital titles commonly used by publishers to “expire” eBooks in circulation was underestimated; rather than 10 circulations, the accepted standard seems to be closer to a whopping 26.
