Are you interested in the future of learning?
Are you wondering what the learning pioneers and world leading practitioners are working on?

Join the ELIG Brave New Learning Conference 2019 that will gather international and local learning professionals, innovative companies and policy makers to share ideas, learn from each other and hack together some of the most prominent learning challenges we face.


We are super excited to get to know initiatives in The Netherlands and from all Europe as the conference’s key statements are very much in synch with our approaches and ideas.
From the Brave New Learning website:


21st century skills for everybody
As our societies become ever more digital, we see the gap between the digital natives and the digital illiterates widen every day. We need to make sure everyone can keep up with the pace and nobody is left behind. We need more learning experiences that support the development of 21st century skills and help to close the existing digital skill gaps.

Learning by making
An open making space provides the ideal setting for meaningful personal experiences. For imagination and the telling of stories; for dialogue and cooperation; for learning and creativity; for what is familiar and what opens our eyes. The experience of learning by making allows all kinds of transformations to happen.

Learning Communities
Our society needs physical and virtual communities where formal and informal learning can take place in a safe environment. Third spaces and public libraries in particular have a great tradition as a community builder. Learning with and learning from communities is critical to address some of the most prominent challenges we face today.

Augmented learning
With the advancement of technology, the boundaries between personal devices and the physical environment are blurring. Technology will have a big impact on how we learn and play a crucial role in building personal learning experiences. We need to find how we can leverage these technologies to augment personal learning in a meaningful way
