MIAMI & PANAMA CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NEORIS, a global innovation services company, presented its hyper personalized education model that promises to disrupt the way that individuals, groups and organizations evolve and align to new global digital demands in the higher education sector. More than 200 leaders from 41 higher education institutions throughout Latin America that attended the Ilumno Summit 2018 in Panama discovered how to accelerate digital transformation and adopt a student-centric strategy during a keynote address delivered by Anthony DeLima, NEORIS Head of Digital Transformation.
Ilumno is the largest pan-regional higher education network of universities in the Latin America and Caribbean region. By implementing technology and innovation within its partners, Ilumno seeks to increase access to quality education, while growing student outcomes and improving lives in the communities it serves.
Technology is reshaping every aspect of our lives including how students, teachers and educational institutions, interact, operate, and deliver value. De Lima shared NEORIS’ proprietary research focusing on how institutions of higher learning need to customize the learning experience in a digital native society, shifting from mobile first to AI (Artificial Intelligence) first to keep in line with global pacing.
“As the economy becomes globalized and information based, those with greater access to education will benefit the most,” said Pete Pizarro, President and Chief Executive Officer of Ilumno.
Pizarro said that “connectivity is transforming emerging economies, labor markets and education systems, driving the demand for more extensive and more dynamic in-person and online learning,” and emphasized that “universities must adapt quickly to continue serving as a viable source of education for the new generations of students.”
“Change drivers such as online learning, cloud-based work spaces, technical specialization, millennials and re-entry students are creating a digital mindset for a hyper personalized, student-centric experience,” said Anthony DeLima, NEORIS Head of Digital Transformation. “The journey is a complex one that involves the fundamental restructuring of how education is delivered, achieving a more collaborative educational model, helping faculty to transform itself from being teachers to educational coaches and leveraging technology to enable smart interactions with students. Diagnosing and assessing where you are on the digital transformation journey and developing the digital roadmap is an important first step. Taking bold action, getting out of the traditional comfort zone and having the courage to experience the possible are critical factors to achieving change.”
