The 4th Industrial Revolution and its Impact on Learning

We are living during a time of unprecedented and rapid change. New technologies like artificial intelligence and smart machines are emerging with the potential for having a transformative impact on industry, the economy and society as a whole.   Our physical and digital worlds are fusing, resulting in breakthroughs that were only imagined in the past. The speed and scope of this technological transformation is exponential with the potential for unlimited possibilities and endless opportunities. What are the implications for schools, educators and students?  How do we provide leadership in a time of rapid change?  The CoSN 2018 Annual Conference will dive deeply into the issues as we seek answers to these questions and design learning in the 4th Industrial Revolution.
