Venue: Carnegie Mellon Qatar: Moot Board Room (Room 1131)
Justine Cassell, associate vice provost of technology strategy and impact at Carnegie Mellon University, and co-director of the university’s Simon Initiative, will talk about the impact of technology on global education.
Cassell will comment on the importance of using knowledge about learning and its context to design technology-enhanced learning tools.
The promise of new digital technologies to improve education has raised expectations around the world, but so far the results have been limited. While the Internet and video lectures provide wide access to content, access alone does not deliver strong learning outcomes. Cassell will explore the need for tools that engage learners actively in the discovery of new skills and ideas, using continuous practice and targeted feedback.
