About the Conference

The 2nd International Conference in the Future of Education (ICFEDU) in London, United Kingdom aims at fostering growth and research in field of education.

ICFEDU promotes collaborative excellence between academicians and professionals from Education.

The aim of this conference is to provide an opportunity for academicians and professionals from various educational fields with cross-disciplinary interests to bridge the knowledge gap, promote research esteem and the evolution of pedagogy.

We invite research papers that encompass conceptual analysis, design implementation and performance evaluation. All papers submitted for possible presentation at ICFEDU and for publication in the proceedings are subjected to a double-blind, peer review process.

The Conference Director for the ICFEDU and organising body is The Grid Media Ltd.

Dr. Mark Anderson FSEDA SFHEA

Title: Digital and diverse: embedding inclusive pedagogies for sustainable learning futures

Summary: The future of education is becoming increasingly difficult to predict, but there are at least two trends that look set to continue: digital technologies will further infuse our educational experience, practice and discourse; and the diversity of our learning communities will become ever richer and more complex. As we explore new ways to harness the potential of technology-enhanced learning, and to ensure that we create fully inclusive learning opportunities and environments, it becomes critical to revisit core principles. By keeping evidence-based, person-centred pedagogies at the heart of our learning culture, we can help prepare students to grow, adapt and thrive in learning futures that they create.
