This external research symposium presents talks, academic poster session, living labs & prototypes for future education followed by a wine reception and book launch on the theme of the symposium. The symposium revolves around the characteristic design question “How might we…?” in relation to the theme “Imagining and designing for education the day after tomorrow”.

The seminar addresses question and theme through a series of events and projects to provide a multi-facetted and broadly-based perspective. The symposium presents talks, academic posters, living labs, prototypes and a book on the theme covered by a keynote, a thematic talk and three design based research projects within the area.

Professor Dana Walker will give a keynote on ‘Re-Imagining Self, Community, and Spaces for Engagement: Translocal Youth Radio Connecting Catalonia, Spain and Colorado USA.’ This talk explores the potential of Translocal Youth Radio and Radio Arts for promoting powerful communication, transformative agency, and social participation among youth from marginalized groups at risk of social exclusion. The networked learning project connects students in Greeley, Colorado and Barcelona, Spain through dialogue, joint production, collaborative imagining and problem solving, and local social action. Multiliteracies and media technologies are leveraged to support critical engagement among youth with their local and global realities and new spaces for engagement.

Associate professor Rikke Toft Nørgård will give a thematic talk on technological imagination and designing for education the day after tomorrow.

The project “Girls in Tech” from ICT-Based Educational Design, Aarhus University gives a talk on ‘Programmable girls?” and presents academic poster and living lab with prototype on how to avoid ‘fixing the girls’ when inviting girls to imagine having futures with and within technology. The project is contributing to #Make What’s Next: Girls in Tech (Coding Pirates & Microsoft).

The project “Courageous Teaching” from ICT-Based Educational Design, Aarhus University gives a talk on “Creating courageous teaching through design patterns” and presents academic posters and living lab with prototype on principles, patterns and processes for courageous teaching as well as a study of what the implications of courage in education might be. The project is contributing to the Secretariat for Development of Courageous Teaching.

The project “Visual Storytelling”, ICT-Based Educational Design, Aarhus University gives a talk on “Co-creating education with visual storytelling” and presents academic posters and living lab with prototype on the potentials of visual storytelling within independent boarding schools and upper secondary school co-created through participatory design with students, teachers, professionals and educational designers. The project is contributing to Centre for Visual Storytelling and Digital Media (Filmby Aarhus).

The symposium concludes with a wine reception and book launch on the themes and projects.
