Technology and the future of education, learning, knowledge and universities (futurist speaker Gerd Leonhard)

These are the slides I used for my presentation in TheHaque NL on Nov 8 2013 see Topics: screenification of education, p2p learning, from data to knowledge to wisdom, artificial intelligence and human learning, the impact of technology on how universities operate, customization and much more. Will there be 'Kodak Moments' for universities?

About my new book: are you ready for the greatest changes in recent human history? Futurism meets humanism in Gerd Leonhard’s ground-breaking new work of critical observation, discussing the multiple Megashifts that will radically alter not just our society and economy but our values and our biology. Wherever you stand on the scale between technomania and nostalgia for a lost world, this is a book to challenge, provoke, warn and inspire.
