On Wednesday, September 2, Siegel Family Endowment (SFE) will participate in The Future of Learning at the Intersection of Technology and Design, a panel discussion on the role of new technology and design in developing the classroom of tomorrow. We’re partnering with the International Society for Technology in Education, Reimagine America’s Schools, and CityAge to seek expert opinions on how design and technology can be better leveraged together to create more impactful learning environments for students.
As we reconsider necessary and timely changes in the construction and development of America’s public schools, there’s an opportunity to make this moment in infrastructure development as impactful as possible by reimagining how schools are built and designed from the ground up. This convening of leaders in education, design, and technology will address questions around integrating physical and digital learning spaces, and explore new ways of supporting next-generation learning skills and active, inquiry-driven learning strategies.
SFE’s Director of Grants Management Joshua Elder is co-moderating the panel with Ron Bogle, the head of Reimagine America’s Schools’ National Design Alliance. Panelists will include experts from the fields of technology, design, and education, including:
- Sheryl Abshire, Educational Consultant & Former CTO, Calcasieu Parish Public Schools
- Rhonda Allen, Chief Membership and Partnership Officer, International Society for Technology in Education
- Ashley Arhart, Built Experience Innovator & Principal, BCG Platinion
- Satya Basu, Digital Innovation Strategist & Associate, Perkins & Will Architects
