Emerging technologies: David Kelly, CEO at Learning Guild and Dani Johnson, Cofounder & Principal Analyst at RedThread Research, are tackling this year's emerging technologies session at Learning Technologies 2024 this April in London.

It’s always the best-attended session at the Learning Technologies Conference. It sets the scene for the technology side of the event by not just discussing what’s happening in the marketplace and exploring what’s trending, but also by examining the implications of all this for L&D as a profession.

Deafened by the incessant buzz surrounding learning technology? This session offers a lucid exploration of the rapidly evolving learning tech landscape, a welcome quiet voice of sanity against the cacophony of the market.

Learning Technologies Conference Chair, Donald H Taylor, said: “We will scrutinise the current trends in learning technology, with a focus on understanding their role as enablers in the L&D profession, going beyond functionality to ask what technologies can do for us? Yes, AI, personalisation, learning analytics and skills are exciting and powerful – but they are enablers, and it’s only by considering what they enable that we realise their true value.” 

Talking points/takeaways:

  • Navigating the crowded learning tech market
  • Understanding technologies as enablers in L&D
  • Insights into emerging trends and future directions
  • Beyond buzzwords: making practical tech choices

The 'emerging technologies' session with Dani Johnson and David Kelly takes place on day one, 17 April at 11:15.

The full programme is available on the event website Learning Technologies 2024 Conference, along with conference pass sales: Learning Technologies 2024 Conference Conference Passes.

Speakers include: Stella Lee, Laura Overton, Chara Balasubramaniam, Brandon Carson, Hadiya Nuriddin, Markus Bernhardt; just a few of the 90+ speakers on the programme.
