Key Topics

From our speakers

Good anxiety

Anxiety in fact protects us and is crucial for surviving. There is more: people of all ages are capable of taking control over it and using it for their own benefit. Join us and learn how to experience less anxiety and use it as a source for developing talents and superpowers.

Neurodiversity in education

Every student is unique, yet the educational system strives to establish a certain standard. Imagine if you could employ cognitive technologies to discover the full potential of each of your students. Join our discussion on neurodiversity and learn why it plays a crucial role in education.

Emotions in work, studies and life

Suppressing emotions and bottling up feelings can endanger your health: both physically and psychologically. Emotional system has a substantial influence on the cognitive processes in humans: if you are trying to suppress emotions, it will be difficult for you to study, and if you are a teacher, your mood swings affect the student assessment process. Hacking the emotional intelligence will enable us to create a healthy, impartial and innovative world.

Speech recognition and reading skills

Speech recognition systems promote development of tools for audio-assisted reading that can be used both in the classroom and at home. In the nearest future literally every child regardless of level of income and life circumstances will be able to receive support for developing early literacy skills. Join the session and find out how we are going to employ these technologies and if they may negatively affect teachers or students.

Overcoming teachers burnout

The number of teachers quitting their jobs around the world is raising much concern. Many name emotional burnout among the reasons for quitting. Can a tea break over a muffin or classes on self-awareness save educators the disappointment? How we can make t the well-being of the staff a priority without missing the critical point?

AI advances

AI is being used by many universities. It should improve the students' performance and help them reach their potential. What is a perfect scenario for that? What failures we may face? What does the future hold for AI in HE?

Continuing education and progress at work

Professional retraining and advanced training is not a one-off task as the employees have to learn continuously. Yet it is hard to identify which new skills they will need. Creative approach may help in adequately identifying, assessing and developing skills for internal mobility.

Learning and earning in WEB3

Blockchain ensures a more flexible economy, and we are witnessing a launch of new educational models: “learn and earn”, when students can get cryptocurrency. Is this model going to be effective and can it really transfer the education system from preschool to K-12?

Parents vote for alternative education

It has been known for a while among parents, students and teachers that a one-for-all approach for the learning process is not enough. Today parents have more options than ever before. At the session we will discuss how parents can choose alternative education that completely meets the demands of their children.

Go beyond the textbook

If adults want to learn something new, they do not turn to a book for it. In other words, those who become lifelong learners use different sources of information: YouTube, blogs, podcasts, Wikipedia or TikTok. By incorporating 21st century media tools into the traditional learning materials, we will teach our kids critical thinking and ability to find necessary information on the Internet. This way they will enjoy the learning process.

Metaverse in higher ED

AR, VR and metaverse can open up new possibilities for the learning process of students. Join us and learn about the latest technologies that can reshape higher education and lead us to unexpected breakthroughs and effective teaching methods.

In-company training and video content

Educational courses are just a small part of the knowledge transfer system in corporations. 70% of learning happens during the working process. Therefore employees should be granted constant access to knowledge. Join us and learn how to efficiently integrate new training courses with employees and how to use video content that they create themselves.

Educational program standards: where to draw the line

High demand for lifelong learning and rapid transfer to online format have boosted the number of offers and providers in EdTech. What really makes a good educational program? Which metrics do we need to use and how?
