This week Bernhard, one of the Co-Founders of busuu.com was invited to hold a keynote speech at the conference “Future Learningscapes – a 21st century Challenge” organized by the University of Greenwich close to London.
Bernhard shared his experience of managing Europe´s leading online community for learning languages and gave his thoughts about how future learningscapes could look like.
According to his opinion, future learning will include a mix of learning activities (self-studying, peer-to-peer-learning, live teachers) and learning places (offline, online, mobile). Additionally, technology will be used in a much smarter way in order to improve the effectiveness of the learning progress of each student.
The conference was a great experience, a fantastically organized event and it was very good to see that the academic world more and more is aware of innovative learning tools like busuu.com, which could be used to improve the way students learn new languages within their academic studies.
