Emerging technologies and the future of language learning

Consulting & Future Foresight

Check out my academic article ‘A vision for a humanising and sustainable future of language learning with the metaverse’ in the Journal of Futures Studies.

“The future will bring increasingly more collaboration between humans and technology, which will have much more powerful outcomes than either one working on their own. The efficiency of technology combined with human creativity, reflection, intuition, and imagination will lead to unprecedented exponential development in all areas. This will open up new opportunities but also bring news risks.

Future Foresight helps us challenge our assumptions about the future, see alternative futures, think strategically about opportunities and risks that come with emerging technologies, and work towards our preferred futures.”
