Technology for Good: Using Blockchain & Artificial Intelligence to Change How We Educate

with Phaedra Boinodiris

member of IBM’s Academy of Technology







Why should you attend?

Join Phaedra Boinodiris, a member of IBM's Academy of Technology, as she relays lessons learned of how we can harness technology and gaming to shift the mindset in our Education systems.

Technology, globalization, and our economy are changing so fast….offering enormous opportunity while also being very disruptive and unsettling. Blockchain, AI and other technologies allow us to tackle big problems in new ways, engaging students, enabling teachers and harnessing a new culture within schools.

Listen to her WUNC interview with Frank Stasio.
