Jasmin Bey Cowin, Ed.D. to speak at the virtual 26th Annual NATE Conference Digital Change in the ELT Community in Moscow, Russia

The 2021 NATE Conference is dedicated to Digital Change in the ELT Community. Never has the world faced such fast-paced change and vast digitalization and, as a result, required such spur-of-the-moment creativity and agility from educational professionals. We are in this process together and have a lot of personal and professional experience to share.

Dr. Bey Cowin’s conference topic will be: Innovation, Collaboration, Transformation: Education for a Connected World. The conference host is the National University of Science and Technology.

Globally, the way we educate and are educated is changing at a rapid pace. New technologies and ways of interpreting the world are reshaping educational philosophies and their underpinning pedagogies while transforming modes of delivery in educational institutions worldwide. This presentation explores the necessity of rethinking education for a successful integration in the artificial intelligence (AI) age.

The need to adapt by educational institutions, corporations, teachers, and learners is great. However, what kind of frameworks are necessary for education in the digital age? What resources will be necessary to bring education into digital classrooms from early childhood through tertiary and technical education? What trends and possibilities are on the horizon to educate and train entire generations of educators to stay relevant in the 21st Century and beyond? Five emerging trends for 21st-century education will be explored.
