Graham Brown-Martin

It's perhaps no surprise that Graham initially pursued a career in the technology sector given that he was born in England during the 1960s near Bletchley Park, the site of Britain's code-breaking effort during World War II led by Alan Turing. 

Leaving school early he pursued a successful 30-year career that spanned the digital, education and creative sectors inventing and building new businesses that challenged the status quo. Always too early, he designed mobile computers in the 1980s, interactive digital music systems in the 1990s and cloud-based storage systems in the early 2000s.

In 2004, he founded the global think tank Learning Without Frontiers, that brought together renowned educators, technologists and creatives to begin a new global dialogue about the future of learning. Responsible for some of the most provocative and challenging debates about education, Graham left LWF in 2013 to pursue new programmes and ideas to transform the way we learn, teach and live.
Graham spent 2 years researching, travelling, writing and editing video to create the transmedia work, Learning {Re}imagined published by Bloomsbury Academic, 2014.
Keynote Abstract

Learning {Re}imagined: How the Connected Society is Transforming Learning


After running one of the world's largest think tanks and summits about the future of learning Graham, supported by the World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE), spent nearly 2 years researching and visiting case studies and interviewing leading thinkers and activists across 6 continents and travelling more than 150,000 miles to discover innovation in learning and how the connected society is transforming learning. He reaches some unexpected conclusions about the role of technology in learning and the purpose of education.
