Topic: Promoting Education to Post -Millennial Students.

Speaker: Mr. Teng June Lean, Marc Outline The advent of the internet and the digital revolution has caused many innovative disruptions across different realms and industries over the last 20 years. One of the greatest game changer will no doubt be in the education industry where there is a proliferation and abundance of data and information. In the same token, students who were born around the millennial have a different approach towards education as compared to their parents and forefathers. With increasing information and a shorter attention span, educators today are facing the uphill task of making education relevant and engaging for the students. The students of today are more tech savvy and they have information, authentic or otherwise, readily on their fingertips. The first part of this paper will explore the characteristics of the Post-Millennial Generation and how they would respond to the different types of pedagogies. The latter part will discuss why some of the education systems in the world would need to progress beyond the rote learning methods to engage this new group of learners. Pedagogies and concepts such as the Gamification of the education system, Higher order thinking skills and Authentic learning will also be discussed in this paper as possible strategies on how to engage students from this era. While this paper is about espousing the merits of the GAH Model [Gamification, Authentic Learning and Higher Order Thinking], it is not without its limitations. The final part of this paper will point out about the restrictions of these strategies in different cultural and classrooms context and draw a balance vis-à-vis the current education system.

Topic: Dynamics of New Media and Technology in Catalyzing Cultural and Political Change Prof. Debashis Chakrabarti Professor and Head, Dept of Communication studies Ministry of Higher Education, Sultanate of Oman.

Outline The advent of digital technology with a switch from analogue to digital signals, combined with the web network and satellite transmission has triggered a communication revolution. It has largely reshaped human communication and social interactions in the post modern civilization of 21st century. Google, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and YouTube are now household names. They are now part of the social fabric. The change in the digital landscape has been perceived largely due to a number of communication resurgences and a few more technical upheavals. First, internet has been found to be the real change agent as a whooping increase of 93% users has been discerned among the age group of 12 to 17 from 2000 to 2010.

Second, the wireless connectivity has been identified as another change factor. It is observed that more than two third of adults and three fourth of teen agers use the cloud. The third change agent has been Social networking. Recent studies found that social networking is not only popular among the young users; it is growing among older users also. This constant connectivity has a far reaching impact. It has been rapidly ‘changing social pattern and info flows’. The political impact of social media has focused on the power of mass protests to topple governments. The paper aims at assessing the significance of these momentous changes that may lead to deep social and cultural transformations in human society. It will also probe into the debates: what should be the limit of free speech and criticism in social media? If free speech is controlled in social media, how can social media reflect a democratic space? Is the internet really free? In the post-globalisation world, has the internet been metamorphosed into a giant corporate tool for regimenting people and their ideas than becoming an active agent of democracy and knowledge generation?

Biography Debashis Chakrabarti, a noted media scholar and researcher, is currently a Professor and Head of the Department of Communication Studies at the College of Applied Sciences at the Ministry of Higher Education in Oman.
