ASU+GSV is upon us! And as with all conferences there are a bevy of options for things to see, stuff to do, and places to network. Here are 8 of the best things to do on Monday.
Innovations in College Design – Cortez Hill C, Level 3 – 11:10 AM – 11:50 AM
This will be a primer on the areas of college redesign that are the most promising and most in need of adoption by colleges. It will cover how some universities are creating more affordable higher education (a continuous problem). This panel could offer some really useful insights from across the industry.
Building Research Backed Gamified Edu Tools – Mission Beach C, Level 3 – 1:00 PM – 1:45 PM
We discussed gamification and the ways that it was good but also very difficult. The GoGuardian team is claiming that their new tool Giant Steps, will effectively utilize all of the important parts of gamification research. You can go listen, ask questions, and determine for yourself whether this is a truly useful system or another way to add some buzzwords to an extant product.
Can We Finally Use the Proliferated Data to Drive K-12 Outcomes? – Coronado B, Level 4 – 2:00 PM – 2:40 PM
The question of data interoperability is a hard one. For a long time the digital technologies that have entered the classroom have created many spread out “data lakes” which are often far less structured and harder to compare than a true data warehouse. But with the rise of AI, there might be some ways to let them feast on the semi-structured and unstructured data in many of these lakes and create some truly revolutionary insights.
XR Demos: Workforce – Metaverse Experience in Town Square, Level 1 – 3:00 PM – 4:10 PM
What would a tech conference be without putting on some VR goggles? Come check out the different experiences that each startup has created and judge whether it seems like it will be genuinely useful for the learning experience.
Implementing High Dosage Tutoring at Scale – Cityview A, 32nd Floor – 3:40 PM – 4:20 PM
We talk about tutoring a lot here at E3D News and this panel is specifically designed to be two case studies on how high dosage tutoring was rolled out in school districts and whether it was effective to buy an off-the-shelf product or create their own in house.
Future of School: Hybrid Learning Models are Here to Stay – Promenade A/B, Level 3 – 3:40 PM – 4:20 PM
Tragically at the same time as our previous entry, this panel proposes to answer questions like; How will a post-COVID school actually be different? Where are hybrid solutions most useful? What can we expect to change in the coming years for education as more and more products are developed for a world like the emergency remote learning world we endured in 2020?
Stage X Monday Dinner – Seaport Ballroom A-E, Level 2 – 5:45 PM – 7:30 PM
No reason to miss Sam Altman, the CEO of OpenAI and the force behind ChatGPT. It is unlikely that anything truly revolutionary will come out here, but it could be interesting nonetheless.
EdTech Insiders /imagine Happy Hour and AI Social – Brigantine Seafood & Oyster Bar – 6 PM – 8:30 PM
Another EdTech Insiders happy hour this time with a focus on AI. Come talk to people about EdTech, AI, and everything else. And score as many drink tickets as you can get your hands on.
