The last 10 years have seen an explosion of devices and connections that are changing the landscape of education and learning. We now carry massive storehouses of information and knowledge as well as billions of potential teachers in our pockets and backpacks. As a result, a new world of connected, networked, self-directed learning and creating is upon us, with huge implications for schools. What constitutes an education now that we can learn deeply in informal spaces outside the school walls? What are the new roles of teachers when content knowledge is ubiquitous? And how do we best prepare our students for the modern learning worlds in which they will live and work? We’ll tackle these and other questions as we explore the important and complex changes and shifts that come with ubiquitous access to the Web.

Will Richardson is "Learner in Chief" at Connected Learning and well known author, blogger and speaker. He is an advocate for school reform which encourages the integration of technology in learning.
