The rise of Humanism in a digital world.

The Festival For The Future

As technology soars with progression and development, there could be a regression of how to be human, especially in the digital world.

In 2019, an event at Bury St Edmunds looked at bringing through just that and use it as a driving issue within education and deal with it.

The International Festival of Learning brings together the best thought-leaders from around the world to talk, debate and identify alternatives to reinvigorate the education system.

Hosted at West Suffolk College, it will be the third year that the festival has taken place and will be spread around the campus with different zones across areas such as, performing arts, international education, teacher training, careers education, physical education and sport, administration and support, leadership, STEM and SEND.

More than 90 speakers were confirmed for the event, such as Apple’s Mike Watkinson, Oliver Cavigliol, author of the bestselling book ‘Dual Coding with Teachers’, Ofsted’s chief inspector, Graham Trick and Mary Myatt, education adviser and author at John Catt Educational Publishing.

The festival, according to the Bury Free Press, is looking and promoting human skills that will be needed to interact with technology across the digital space, providing chances to future generations to do well in the future with advancing tech.
