Worldwide, the explosion of digital technologies of all forms puts us in the midst of a revolution in education, across both K-12 and universities. The use of technology-powered learning holds great promise as efficacious and egalitarian means to help increasing numbers of people (young and old) obtain or accelerate learning and meet challenges in a changing, competitive world. This transformation in how we view and do education has been referred to as Education 3.0, due to its interactive, self-learning, and personalized nature. Features include omnipresent adaptive digital environments and experiences, and the ability of programs to self-learn and precisely adjust to the individual learner. Components, such as personalized learning, competency-based education, embedded assessment, flexible instructional adaptation, self-pacing, and common standards, share critical features with behavior analysis. Participants will be encouraged to reflect upon and discuss the congruence between Education 3.0 and behavior analysis, and the opportunity for greater learning and change for all.
