Throughout history there has been several changes in our capacity to learn. With each change it has increased our ability to learn more efficiently and effectively. Each paradigm shift in learning builds on our ability to learn through time and ultimately addresses the visual, auditory, kinaesthetic and read/write preferences. An emerging shift will challenge how schools will successfully engage students in learning as the learner seeks access to anything, anywhere, anytime, from any place and with anyone.


With the shift in skillsets required by our young people, schools need to be responsive to the way technology is integrated to assist learners to be smarter in their learning, thinking and doing. There is also a corresponding need to design learning spaces that will support the varied learning needs, interests and talents of each learner. The dynamics of teaching and learning will change to provide learning opportunities that will engage students with everyone needing to be a leading learner.


This webinar will explore the paradigm shifts in learning and then progress to the impact emerging technologies will have on instruction, learning environments and methodology. Primary and secondary teachers and teacher librarians will be able to consider a response to future learning by understanding

  • how we learn best,
  • the impact of new and emerging technology on teaching and learning,
  • how the redesign of learning spaces can assist future learning, and
  • the need to provide variety in learning opportunities.

All participants will be provided with the opportunity to identify their range of learning preferences and natural learning capabilities prior to the webinar. This information will be explored during the live broadcast.
