Learning How to Make the Future
Gamers are showing us the way to the future of online learning. Are you ready to play? In this keynote from acclaimed game designer and futurist Jane McGonigal, you’ll take a trip ten years into the future to see how new ways of collaborating, questing, and scoring (all directly inspired by today’s most popular videogames, from Fortnite to Pokemon Go) have transformed online learning. Immerse yourself in a future world where anyone, anywhere can be both teacher and learner – exchanging learning credits as easily as people are trading Bitcoin or collecting Pokemon today. When you approach the future of learning with the mindset of a gamer, who knows what doors you’ll unlock, what super powers you’ll gain, or what level you’ll break through to? This playful session will help you imagine alternate realities that you’ve never considered before.
