We are pleased to announce that Tobias Heiberg Jørgensen will be this year’s conference moderator at the KnowHow EdTech conference. Tobias is the Head of the Teacher Education Programme at Playful Learning at Københavns Professionshøjskole.

Playful Learning is a collaborative programme between the Danish University Colleges and the LEGO Foundation. The ambition with Playful Learning is to enhance children’s creative and experimental approach to the world and bolster a lifelong motivation for playful learning. To be creative and playful throughout life is a fundamental part of being human, it’s essential to participation in meaningful and innovative communities and it’s vital in a changing, globalized world.

For this reason, the key target group for Playful Learning are educators working with teacher education and social education at all University Colleges. These educators must trigger a chain reaction to enhance creativity, curiosity and a desire for experimentation among Danish children.

For several years, Tobias has worked to create substantial quality in the Danish educational sector on both a national policy level and locally with Danish teacher training.

His work is centered around driving educational cultures between future and tradition. If we genuinely want to develop and strengthen a different set of competencies in our school systems, we must focus on developing more consistent and concrete examples of new learning environments that correspond more profoundly with the competencies of tomorrow. Based on that philosophy Tobias Heiberg was one of the driving forces in creating such examples with Future Classroom Lab and the innovative teacher training programme Future Classroom Teacher at Københavns Professionshøjskole.
