DAY-2: Annual Update on Matters Educational 2011

Saturday, 10th December 2011

As the quote from Bill Gates shows, the coming years will fundamentally change the course of high quality learning. The program for this day is to take note of key developments and reflect upon them and then plan a way forward. We will share efforts and experiences and deliberate on the future. And not too long term.....but over the next 5 years.

While some presenters have been identified, the purpose of Pecha Kucha presentations is to give an opportunity to make very short (5 to 10 minutes) presentations. The orthodox PechaKucha is a set of 20 slides for 20 seconds each, but we are more flexible. So if you have any thought to share or wish to take part in the panel discussion, do let us know and we will try to accommodate you.
