Educational transformations in the 21st century

IX International Seminar 2012, UNESCO Chair in e-Learning (UOC)The SpeakApps project was presented in the IX International Seminar “Transformative Changes in Education: System-wide Approach”, celebrated in Barcelona on 26-27 November. Organised by the UNESCO Chair in e-Learning of the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC), the project was present at the event through a showcase entitled SpeakApps: resources and applications for developing oral skills online.

Celebrated every year since 2004, the meeting gathered international experts in education and pedagogy to discuss about the much needed reforms of the education system. The effects of globalisation in educational trends, what neuroscience research tells us about the learning process, the role of technology as a driver for change, the educational evaluation systems and the digital assessment, and learning as a life-long process were some of the topics addressed during the meeting.
