This morning I attended another fascinating session entitled ‘Building a Learning World’. The panelists discussed e-learning and the opportunities new information technology present for education – with Gabrielle Zedlmayer from Hewlett-Packard saying that technology can make education more immersive, more collaborative, more accessible, and make education an experience. While technology cannot be a substitute for face to face learning – it can be an enabler. I highly recommend viewing this session on the WISE website
