Berlin (GER), November 2018 - Bots are ready to take off in learning, yet this new way of communicating with learners provides challenges for education and learning technology professionals. At OEB 2018, a panel of edtech experts will present everything we need to know.
Bots can be useful; bots can be nefarious. In the digital world, they are almost ubiquitous. In learning, they are ready to take off.
A panel at OEB 2018 will examine the innovative use of bots in various sectors and areas. For people new to the topic, it will present an "everything-you-always-wanted-to-know-but-were-afraid-to-ask" opportunity. Those already familiar will be introduced to compelling new concepts for the application of bots in learning and training.
The panel comprises edtech entrepreneur Donald Clark, innovation and emerging tech academic Silvia Prieto Preboste, and educational psychologist Lars Satow.
Donald Clark, member of OEB's Global Council e and CEO of an AI learning company WildFire, has been involved in consulting and implementing online learning in schools, FE, HE, corporate and government.
Silvia Prieto Preboste is Innovation Unit Coordinator and lecturer at Madrid Open University (UDIMA). Her research and teaching focus on the intersections of digital media and society, with a special focus on innovation and emerging technologies.
Dr. Lars Satow is responsible for social and digital learning for SAP's cloud platform SAP Learning Hub, which has more than 500,000 learners.
"Learning and Training with Bots - Why Not?" takes place at OEB 2018 in Berlin, 06 December at 14:30 and forms part of a series of sessions about edtech and technology solutions.
The full OEB conference programme along with registration and all the information delegates need to plan their time at the event is available on the OEB website.
