13:30 The Impact Of Digital Learning For The Workforce Of The Future: Micro-Learning As An Option

  • Technology has brought about new opportunities for both individuals and businesses. By 2020, experts predict that spending on digital transformation initiatives will surpass the $2 trillion mark. That translates to a tremendous amount of investment by companies across industry sectors.
  • One of the keys to driving the people element of digital transformation is offering learning and development initiatives that not only train existing staff but serve to attract in-demand new talent to the business. In April 2018, Temasek Polytechnic launched a new means of learning, focused on helping working adults achieve their need for constant upgrading and skills re-development. The Micro-Learning Courses (or MLCs) allow individuals to learn at their own time and pace, on any mobile device. In this session, Temasek Polytechnic will share how they have empowered and enabled a new way of learning through MLCs to help companies and individuals acquire new skills, pertinent to help them stay relevant in the face of digital transformation.

14:00 Fast-Track To Active Learning

Distance Learning has been a hot topic for many years. Many schools and universities have looked at Digital Technologies to make Education more scalable, affordable or even more accessible. Incorporating new technologies in Education is never easy. In fact, many have failed simply because changing human behavior can be a real challenge. This is why technology should be adapted to the Education sector and not the reverse. It has to be purpose-built and simple enough for teacher to use it, interactive enough for student stay engaged and scalable enough for IT to deploy it! In his session, Marc Remond will share with you some of the best practices and latest innovation in that space, so that you can avoid common pitfalls and fast-track your way to Active Learning.

15:30 Case Study: The Path To The Development Of A VR Escape Room In Singapore – Solving Math Problems To Escape

  • The approach we use, which is Team Based Learning (TBL) and how we the idea of the VR Escape room originates from the work we have done the last 6 years. Our work in TBL is well documented and we have developed our online learning resources using a platform called ‘Decktoys’ and we use the platform ‘Intedashboard’ to provide us the analytic data to help us understand the gaps in our students’ learning.
  • Our focus will be on the idea of using the ‘Escape Room’ concept in our application process and invariably share how we develop lessons in class that uses a ‘breakout’ box.

14:30 The Flipped Classroom: An Evidence-Based Approach

  • Digitally savvy students enrolled in higher education want to learn in a way that makes sense to them. Their digital world isn’t something new, it’s an extension of who they are. They want their education to be more flexible and more personalized and they want to be educated whenever and wherever they happen to be. The opportunity to learn in this way extends to Work Integrated Learning partnerships – industry placements that allow students to work with organizations across the world either in person or online. When used as a tool that improves students’ understanding and retention of information, this form of ‘flipped classroom’ is proving extremely successful. It reverses the traditional homework/teaching environments, meaning students view lectures when it suits them so that once on campus, class time is devoted to deeper subject analysis and collaboration. This helps students become better learners by developing their higher order cognitive skills such as problem solving and critical thinking.
