The Disruptive Innovation Festival (DIF) is taking over the web again November 7-25. DIF is an online, open access event that invites thought-leaders, entrepreneurs, innovators, businesses, makers and learners to explore the question: The economy is changing – what do I need to know, experience and do?
This year, Teach the Future Europe has the opportunity to host two sessions for this future-focused festival, called “Engaging the next Generation’s Imagination.” In other words, we will show examples of how easy it is to bring future thinking into your classroom.
We believe that we are obligated to prepare young people for tomorrow by teaching the future today. It helps them embrace change in this rapidly changing world, and shows them that they are capable of creating their own future.
That’s why we are attending the open mic sessions. The aim of the Open Mic stage is to provide a platform for future-focused ideas to be shared and discussed so we can all learn from and discover new perspectives for mastering everyday challenges.
Our first session, which will be held on the 8th of November from 12:00-12:30 GMT is focused on working with young people between the age of 10-12 years. The second session, held on the 9th of November from 12:00-12:30 GMT, will discuss the same subject but with a focus on 17-19-year-olds. By explaining several key techniques to help young people imagine the future, we hope to inspire teachers, parents and others to bring futures thinking into the classroom and beyond. Of course we are available to answer all your questions live in the discussion box after the streaming of our sessions.
We hope to virtually welcome you on our Teach the Future session at DIF.
