Spark Stage

A riveting hour of cutting-edge talks featured during lunch. The lead­ing voices have been as­sem­bled to de­liver lunchtime talks on fu­tures top­ics like Ar­ti­fi­cial In­tel­li­gence, Ma­chine-hu­man col­lab­o­ra­tion, The World of Learn­ing, and Ed­u­ca­tion in 2050. Ed­u­ca­tional lead­ers and part­ner­ing or­ga­ni­za­tions join in the di­a­logue for thought­ful, pow­er­ful fol­low up con­ver­sa­tions with the keynote speaker. Ideas are ex­changed and cap­tured for later ad­vo­cacy pa­pers and pub­li­ca­tions from The In­sti­tute.
