Breakout sessions are a combination of AI, AR, and VR topics and non- AI, AR, and VR topics. These sessions are designed to explore the relationship of Machine-human collaboration. Some sessions will focus on the machine while others will focus on the benefits of powering down these emerging technologies.
Our breakout sessions leverage a range of formats including panel discussions, product demonstrations, policy and research discussions, and working group sessions.
Additional speakers to be announced soon.
As an emergency response, educators made a shift to distance learning almost overnight with mitigated success: all over the country, districts report participation rates in distance learning to be as low as 50%. Meanwhile, engagement with video games is at an all-time high. Together, we’ll explore why focusing on motivation and behavior is critical to student success this school year and how having a gamified data-driven approach like Classcraft can help achieve these goals.
Join 21st Cent Ed, A Virtual STEM and CTE Academy powered by TechTrep, to see how.
We have experienced a cosmic shift of lifestyle and routine in 2020 with the COVID-19 pandemic. Companies everywhere are struggling and will continue to struggle to stay afloat. And because of that, the need to cut costs will be greater than ever.
For many businesses, efforts to improve and advance automation have been ramped up significantly in response to the COVID-19 crisis due to the fact that employees have been unavailable to work in those same roles.
And now that these companies are seeing the cost-saving benefits of automation, it’s hard to imagine that they will simply roll back into a human-dominant work style.
Schools must have the same urgency in creating STEM opportunities for students as companies have in eliminating opportunities to be shut down again. For companies this invariably involves leveraging AI, robotics, automation, IoT, and other emerging technologies. Our students must be prepared for a post-COVID-19 technocentric world. The best way to reach the most kids is through a Virtual STEM Academy and Virtual STEM Camps that can be accessed in-school, after-school, and out-of-school. We will discuss how and what’s working.
BellXcel, a national nonprofit, helps school district partners to design, deliver, and monitor supplemental learning solutions. This year, facing extended and rolling school closures and significant learning loss, more than 17,000 scholars participated in BellXcel-powered Remote and in person summer learning programs with great results. As an example, Scholars in Montgomery, AL were able to achieve 3+ months gains in both ELA and Math.
