Helle Rootzén. What is the future learning?

Society will change fundamentally in the coming years. Artificial intelligence, robots and virtual reality are just the tip of the iceberg. If we as human beings are to help build the society of the future – or even if we just have to live in it – it requires knowledge of the technology that lies behind the new things that come. Otherwise, we will fear the future and be unable to build the society we want.

What is important to plan before implementing. Monique van der Linde. Owner of Opinar. Holland

‘Strive for a successful implementation and do not accept an acceptabel implementation.’

That is the aim of Monique van der Linde, owner of Opinar. For most organisations applying robot technology is a new development. When it comes to using new technology, relevant issues for a sustainable imbedding can be overlooked. Just because you do not have the knowledge yet.

With case experience in implementing social robots, a background in implementing software systems and a practical approach Monique supports organisations that want to use robot technology in a succesful way: ‘Optimal use of a robot by a qualified user that feels comfortable using it.’ Experience from implementing in hospitals. How do you plan for a good implementation in the hospital/ in your organization. What if employees are scared for the new technology? How to introduce to patients?

14.45 pm - 15.15 pm

Thomas Langø. Smart robots and assistants for minimally and non-invasive interventions in the Future operating room. Norway

Large telemanipulation systems have been around for almost two decades in laparoscopic surgery. The main system on the market through this period has been the daVinci surgical system from Intuitive Surgical Inc (USA). Currently there are numerous development projects on-going representing future competition for the daVinci. But mainly, smarter systems and handheld devices are entering the market, as well as flexible robotic systems.

Eduard Villaronga - Are Social Robots as good as we think? Have you thought about the implications of care automatization? UK/ Spain

In this talk Eduard Villaronga will reflect upon the growing use of artificial intelligent (AI) and robot technologies for healthcare purposes. Although recent studies support the adoption of robotic technologies for rehabilitation, therapy and care purposes, other research in different fields suggest that technology has a profound and alerting impact on us, and on our human nature.

16.15 pm - 17.00 pm

Nils Elmark. New Business Models

The world’s most recognizable multinational corporations—McDonald’s, General Electric and others—spent many years building their global footprint and brands. They invested over the years in physical assets, local talent, on-the-ground operations, and marketing in several countries. Over time, many of them constructed global supply chains designed to produce, transport, and sell their offerings to customers around the world.

Why playful learning is one of the keys element to equip us with the skills needed in the 21stcentury (LEGO)

LEGO Education believe that learning through playful hands-on activities is a core method to develop the skills that students will need in the future both privately and in the labour market. LEGO Education’s philosophy has been developed and refined through 30 years based on research and collaboration with international universities; especially Tufts University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the United States.

Troels Dyhrman is Area Manager at LEGO Education, responsible for LEGO Education’s activities in Northern Europe and Iberia and is working with partners, universities and local governments to implement more playful hands-on learning.

David Christensen. The Fable robot makes it fun and easy to teach 21st century skills and STEM

David Christensen from Shape Robotic will share the experience the company has had using the Fable robot in primary schools, secondary and higher education. Fable is a modular construction set that students can use to create a robot in few minutes. Students can click the different modules together in different ways to build their robot’s body, and give it senses and movement.

Depending on experience level, the students can program the robot with visual blocks (Blockly) or a text language (Python). Within just one lesson, the students can work with innovation to solve real-world problems.

12.15 pm - 12.45 pm

Morten Jacobsen. Disruptive technologies in an educational perspective Skolen ved Nordens plads. Experience using technology in schools. K12 school for children with special needs.

How can telepresence robots and Virtual reality improve quality of life for students that can’t attend school due to physical or mental illness? See for yourself how the technology enables the ability to be a part of class even though the student is at home. 

You’ll be given examples of how to customize the technology, so it makes sense in an educational context, and you’ll see how the robot works. This presentation will be based on a case study of a 12-year-old Danish boy who hasn’t been to school for more than two years but has been beamed in on the robot everyday instead. It’s all about looking beyond the wow factor and instead focusing on the possibilities of new technology.
