It’s not a matter of whether or not new digital technologies will revolutionize education—they are, have, and will continue to do so. Digital education is not just another fad or reform; it signals a major phase change in transforming teaching and learning. Tremendous synergy exists between disruptive developments such as personalized learning (individualizing education not just for instruction but also interest), learning analytics (using formative and summative evaluation to determine what works from students to schools), online, hybrid, and blended delivery models (which promotes greater instructional reach), gaming technology (the clear use of levels, badges, mastery, and goals in learning), and much more. Will behavior analysis add to innovation and lead early adoption, or simply follow along with the majority, or even lag behind? Tremendous opportunities exist for behavior analysis to lead and support vital change, and this conference offers an exceptional opportunity for behavior analysts to both learn about and learn how to transform education.
