Big Data is an essential part of the business and opens new opportunities. In this session, you will find what is Big Data, what kind of challenges it addresses, what kind of problems it solves, how this helps businesses to grow. We will take a look at a particular use case in the marketing area and see how it affects the company. I will portrait a typical data engineer and GL’s expectations on this position.

IT education trends: GoIT cases

Educational technologies are constantly changing, because they are constantly dealing with modern challenges and it is crucial that all these challenges are met. Almost all of you must have heard about such trends and methods as lifelong learning, project-based learning, a flipped classroom, competency building approach, edutainment, or simply - gamification of learning. Moreover, there are new trends constantly appearing, such as nano-learning, learning facilitation, AI-based adapted learning, neuro-learning areas, and much more.
For educational institutions that claim to be experts in training for IT industry, it is vital to effectively teach students modern technologies and services; therefore it is important to monitor trends in IT education.
During the workshop we will not only talk about trends in IT education and show their results in the implementation of GoIT and GoITeens, but also take a look at other cases, suggesting the ways of implementing these trends in the educational process of Ukrainian universities.
