The Summit of Cambridge Assessment Education Week will be a conference on Anticipating the future of learning. This invitation only event will address the question - How do we harness technology and the social change it brings in order to enhance learning? 

This will be an opportunity for educational leaders from around the world to engage in a longer-term and deeper discussion than is usual on a matter of vital importance to us all.

There is no one answer as to how each one of our institutions should react to these changes – but it is important that we think through what is happening and how we harness those changes to best effect for our learners.

This will be a day to explore how we in education manage technology and the social change it brings in order to enhance learning and an opportunity for educational leaders from around the world to engage in a longer-term and deeper discussion than is usual on a matter of vital importance to us all.  We know more about how students learn than ever before, we see societies and students changing as ever more technology impacts upon them, and the rate of technological change continues apace both inside and outside the classroom.  Cambridge Assessment is devising this event to enable delegates to do just that.

With introductions by the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cambridge, Professor Stephen Toope, and chaired by Saul Nassé Chief Executive of Cambridge Assessment.  The morning will start with a plenary session in which our three eminent speakers will each respectively engage with the Cognitive, Social and Technological dimensions of the question.

  • Professor Usha Goswami, Director, Centre for Neuroscience in Education, University of Cambridge
  • Professor Rose Luckin, Professor of Learner Centred Design, Knowledge Lab, University College London
  • Geoff Stead, Executive Vice-President of Didactics, Babbel

In the afternoon, there will be a series of nine breakout sessions, in which small groups can delve deeper into particular aspects of each dimension.  (The breakout sessions will be repeated to enable delegates to go to a selection).

The Summit will be accompanied by a series of expositions and presentations from the research and developments across Cambridge Assessment and wider technology companies of Cambridge.

The Summit will conclude with a formal dinner and networking at the Faculty of Mathematics.
