 Bobsleighing Tech Fears

Even the most accomplished medalist must conquer their fears. The pandemic has accelerated the use of all things digital, and everyone is barrelling through the barriers when it comes to digital fluency and the emotional support needed. What’s new in technology? How is it being used in innovative ways to create new opportunities and solve challenges? Let’s climb that mountain together and talk about what’s needed to reduce friction against our sleighs in the next normal we’re creating.


Missed a Session? Don't worry we have you covered!!

We know you’re an Olympian, but you’re also human and might not be able to attend every session. That’s why our Olympic Keynotes, Ski Lodge Firesides and breakout sessions will be recorded and shared to continue your quest for the gold (at your convenience).

Even in largely virtual times, people need engaging spaces to convene. What does a virtual ballroom look like? And what about an interactive space for collaboratively building 3D objects? Join the ASU Learning Futures Collaboratory for a hackathon that's all about creating active digital spaces. The LFC will lead this DIY building hackathon with the aim for participants to create a village of connected Hubs rooms. Then, as is customary for all inspiring spaces, Winter Games spectators will enjoy a virtual tour.

How the Future of Technology can be used to Equalize Public K12 education

Zuzana Skvarkova | Innovation in Society Student, College of Global Futures, ASU 

If you are a student in the United States currently attending Public K12 education, you should have the right to an education of equal quality regardless of your geographic location and socioeconomic class. In some parts of the country, 60% of kids drop out of high school. In the Native American communities, it is 80% of kids. If we halved that number, one estimate is that it would create a net gain to the U.S. economy over 10 years of nearly one trillion dollars. This is a major issue that has only continued to increase with time. If we don't confront this issue, it will only worsen.

This session will explore how future advancements in technology can help minimize the wide socioeconomic inequality gap that is existent within the nation and highly impacts the quality of education that a young student receives. One student living in a lower-income community deserves the same education that another student receives in one of a higher-income class. By integrating technologies into classroom learning and emphasizing its funding, future students will be able to gain a more equal education giving everyone a better chance to one day receive the same opportunities.

Not only that but as technology advances it poses a certain threat to the future job market. This session will explore how technological advancements can be integrated into an education curriculum reform, rather than allow it to outpace the value of a human K12 education. Let's imagine the future of public K12 education together!

Learn at Your Own Risk

Tom Haymes | Independent Consultant, IDEASPACES, Author and ShapingEDU Storyteller in Residence

You are at the top of the Piste, and Blofeld's goons are chasing you. Getting down the mountain will require both strategy and improvisation for you to emerge at the bottom unscathed. Learn at Your Own Risk (ATBOSH Media, 2020) provides 9 Digital Age Strategies for skiing the mountain of chaos down to a new normal. You will provide the improvisation. We will divide up into 9 groups and each will be tasked with developing practical applications for each of the Nine Strategies as we map our way out of the pandemic wilderness and finding our new campfires of teaching and learning.

Virtual Play Dates: Turning Your Classroom into a Creative Sandbox
Emily Wray | Integrative Portfolio Specialist - Media Communications, Full Sail University
Kari Whaley, Ed.D. | Graduate Studies Course Director, Full Sail University

Virtual Play Dates offer educators new and exciting ways to engage online students outside the LMS. In this session, we will explore how to use co-facilitated virtual sessions to blend online classes in an effort to more deeply contextualize content, examine cross-curricular connections and build community beyond coursework.

Participants will:

  • Gain an understanding of cross-departmental collaboration possibilities in the virtual space
  • Examine several recent case studies collected during the COVID crisis
  • Engage in a virtual collaborative activity as a demonstration

This session is relevant to the times because it speaks directly to expanding engagement options in the online space. Given the virtual nature of the event, this will offer a unique opportunity to demo the strategies discussed.
