Technology is the answer, but what was the question?

Molly Steenson will come to the house to talk about iconoclastic British architect Cedric Price (1934–2003), who designed building-sized computers and learning systems. Information and its transmission was central to how he designed, and he used technology as a provocation and thinking tool that was intended to alter how people thought about learning and architecture. In particular, I'll talk about a set of projects he designed in the 60s and 70s.

Innovation Policy Day Pre-Party
We will have speakers join us at the house from CEA's Innovation Policy Day happening in downtown Austin.  They will be talking about Innovating Policy for the Internet of Things.

The Internet is increasingly the home for communications between sensors and devices that support a variety of applications, across a broad range of industries. This “Internet of Things” operates over unlicensed spectrum such as wifi and there will undoubtedly be a torrent of new technologies across a host of industries, including communications and entertainment, medical, agriculture, energy, transportation, and the Internet of Things of connected devices and machines. Policymakers in Washington – Congress, the Administration, and the FCC – have begun to recognize the critical importance of supporting the growth of Wi-Fi. This panel will explore the cutting edge policy debates that will undoubtedly impact the new technologies ahead.

Libraries Engage Youth and Privacy
Do youth care about privacy? Social media researchers and librarians say “yes,” and can show how young people take positive steps to protect personal privacy. Open Society Foundations funded an ALA project for librarians to work with high school students on privacy issues. One project focused on problems faced by immigrants to the U.S. This SXSW panel includes three librarians who worked with students on these OSF grant projects. An Austin area student will join the discussion. - See more at: http://schedule.sxswedu.com/events/event_EDUP23302#sthash.MdM18lGb.dpuf

Turn your space into a peer-learning hub!

Renting a stranger’s house on the other side of the world, sharing an office space with fellow self-employed creatives, finding out about breaking news before the journalists themselves: often without knowing it, many 21st century citizens now lead a life that has been deeply impacted by the open web and its values of collaboration. A new awareness of our interdependence transforms the way we consume, work, and travel.

Learning is also profoundly transformed by this novel global proximity. As the CEO of E-180, a Montreal-based social entreprise which creates matchmaking tools connecting like-minded people interested in sharing knowledge over a coffee, Christine aims to turn everyone into a lifelong teacher. In order to do so, she is working on turning spaces into peer-learning hubs, just like this: https://vimeo.com/69124866.
