Theme 2016:
Owning Learning

Tomorrow’s learning is about ownership. We will own our learning. We will control what, where, when and how we learn. 

We will access, link, combine, interpret and interact with knowledge. We will be empowered as never before. We will make learning work for us.

OEB 2016 is all about the new world of the empowered learner - a world in which learning is owned by learners.
