BY CATALINA GOANTA
@ VOL 26 ON APR 09, 2015

In her presentation 'Y we educate', Catalina Goanta shares some of her "teeny tiny" observations gathered during five years of teaching and tries to give flesh to the question of how exactly one needs teach "Millenials", e.g. current students. She integrates references to gamified learning and technology (especially virtual reality), and touches upon the fact that the landscape of skills these students will need in the future is in constant change, and education cannot afford to disregard that. Catalina Goanta shares some of her "teeny tiny" observations gathered during five years of teaching and tries to give flesh to the question of how exactly one needs teach "Millenials", e.g. current students.
