Societies around the world are in the midst of a period of change and transformation unlike any other time over the last 100 years. In this conversation, Dr. McRae will highlight four significant trends (a return of walls, environmental sustainability, automation and digital networks, and artificial intelligence in education) that will change the landscape of schools around the world over the next two decades. This interactive conversation will also discuss new research in small groups from a partnership with Harvard Medical School and Sesame Workshop on the world’s largest study of technology, health and learning and how digital technologies are actively (re)shaping our societies. Most importantly, Dr. Phil will share advice on how we might all achieve a fine balance in a rapidly changing and digitally saturated world.
