Creativity is now recognized as an essential tool for success in our world, both on an individual level and within collective enterprises of all kinds. There has been a marked increase in interest and in research about all aspects of the subject, from the definition, to understanding how creativity works, to learning the skills that activate it at it’s best. In this presentation we will cover the foundations of the creative process itself, and how that map is at the heart of designing educational models for teaching creativity.

Insight from the Intersection of Art and Science

The Intersection of Art and Science

Friday January 6th 2017 | 9:45 AM - 10:30 AM

The insight revealed at the intersection of the arts and sciences has been a key ingredient in innovation throughout the ages. Genius visionaries from da Vinci to Jobs have known that this interaction of disciplines produces rare and amazing fruit. Yet, despite the lessons of their shared wisdom, our current infatuation with technology has flooded schools across the world with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) based learning. In our race to innovate, have we forgotten the recipe for success?

 

What is the role of culture and art in guiding innovation? Does technology increase our capacity for experiencing the arts? Does science help us understand why we create?

 

Join us to learn how to unlock the creativity of today’s digital natives by fusing the arts and sciences, and in the process, plant the seeds of imagination in the innovation generation.

Under the Spell of Possibility: The Magic of Imagination

The Magic of Imagination

friday january 6th 2017 | 11:45 AM - 12:30 PM

The year was 1973 when the celebrated writer, futurist, and inventor Arthur C. Clarke proposed his third law, “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” Fast-forward 43 years to the present day and it’s abundantly clear; we’ve boarded the magic school bus. With platforms from AR to VR, our new reality is constrained only by our ability to imagine it. Innovative content creators are doing just that, imagining new environments to immerse us in a world of their own creation.

 

How are content creators designing experiences both for entertainment and for education? How are augmented and virtual reality being incorporated into the learning experience? Will education be the driving force behind the expansion of VR and AR content development? Will learners be able to distinguish between what’s real and what’s not? How do we design AR and VR to compliment reality, not overtake it?

 

Share with us as we discover how leading content innovators are creating immersive experiences for today’s learners, casting a spell designed to transport us to another world, or to dive deeper into our own.

Workshop presented by Lise Galuga – Pedagogical consultant, TacTIC Team by CFORP

Lise Galuga

friday january 6th 2017 | 2:30 PM - 3:45 PM

Virtual reality is the ultimate tool to teach empathy, putting learners at the centre of the experience and allowing them to get a better understanding of what it’s like to ‘walk in someone else’s shoes.’

 

By using the technology as a tool to learn about the reality of the ‘other,’ by being digital citizens and by living an authentic experience, learners open themselves up to a much broader view of the world.

Design to Fail, Learn to Succeed

Design to Fail, Learn to Succeed

friday january 6th 2017 | 4:15 PM - 5:00 PM

For millennia, architects have been imagining the world we live in. No other profession has a more long lasting impact on shaping how we experience daily life. This is all about to change. Leading designers from around the world are looking to the strategies of gamification to disrupt and inform the future of their industry. From trips to the museum to walks through the school corridors, designers are hard at work rethinking how we engage with our shared physical environments.

 
What role will design play in engaging learners moving forward? What can we learn from problem solvers and content creators to inspire the redesign of learning environments? How will redesigning our institutions alter our perceptions of their purpose?

 
Join us to explore the evolution of design and envision the learning environments of the future, creating space to test ideas, make mistakes and experience positive failure.
