We live now in the era of online information. We empower AI to serve us recommendations of what to look next and robotics to do skilled work. What makes us humans unique and different from AI and robots? What kinds of thinking do we want to outsource to AI and what to do ourselves? This is crucial challenge as universities around the world are transforming their education offerings to match the the future of learning. What kind of learning experience designs can you envision?
JOIN THE 24h DIGIEDUHACK AT AALTO UNIVERSITY
Are you a student, innovator, educator or developer or all of them? Join the challenge on October 3rd-4th in the 24h DigiEduHack, meet new friends and shape human future of learning!
We are looking for an exciting blend of novel online learning tooling and use of learning spaces – we challenge you to help us design learning experiences that truly help learners. The range is free, from augmented or virtual reality to interactive videos or AI-based exercises and more.
"HEY MACHINE, WHAT AM I?" "YOU'RE A HUMAN, THINK ABOUT IT."
What does it require to learn to think like a human? For instance, how do we make sense of all information online? How can we support understanding of the world, and thus to make informed decisions? How can we improve thinking, like critical thinking, spatial thinking, system thinking, imagination or sustainable thinking with a blend of online and actual places?
HOW TO PREPARE FOR THE CHALLENGE?
Please check widely what kind of online, in situ or other options there are to learn thinking. Please check also our Aalto Online Learning pilots for examples of different kinds of online learning themes (virtual reality, augmented reality and so on). Think and share who will better learn some form of thinking, for instance spatial thinking, critical thinking or sustainable thinking. Who or which group will benefit from your solution to the challenge? Please pick up an at least one example person (so called persona), give her/him a name, age, background, life context, work experience, in other words. In other words, bring her to life to illustrate how your approach supports her to learn skills or thinking she, her peers and the society will benefit from.
