Creating equitable digital learning spaces – Panel Discussion, 24 January, 11:00-11:45
By LearningPlanet Alliance
‘Every child has the right to an education’ states the Convention on the Rights of the Child, and LearningPlanet believes that education and learning should be accessible to all, throughout our entire lifetime.
More and more learning is taking place using digital tools and in digital spaces, and yet digital divides continue to exist, so in this session we review what we have learned about creating inclusive, and safe, digital learning spaces, and ask How can we inscribe this into policies that platforms can practise, that governments can enforce, and parents and students can understand?

Leapfrogging learning into the Metaverse, January 24, 14:10-15:00
By LearningPlanet Alliance
If the future plays out as we’re being told, we’ll shortly be living our lives in Metaverses – think VR with friends instead of Zoom – that can provide significantly elevated interactive content exchanges and experiences. The technology is already adopted by gamers and retailers, especially luxury brands. In this session we ask how can we ‘leapfrog’ education into this new space and imagine creating elevated learning experiences?

Content creators, platform designers and software engineers, are the new social engineers, January 24 17:30-18:15
Organised by LearningPlanet Alliance
For both youth and lifelong learners, YouTube & TikTok are seen as THE channels for Peer2Peer and self directed learning, especially when it comes to learning social skills, life skills, well-being, and self care. Effectively, this means that today, content creators, platform designers and software engineers are the new social engineers. In this session we’ll explore what we can learn from expert digital creators, designers and software engineers to help us create meaningful learning content and experiences for professional, social and life skills.

The Future of Artificial Intelligence-Driven Environmental Solutions, January 27, 12:00-13:30
Organised by Sensory Ai
Have you ever thought of a world where environmental disasters can be accurately predicted in seconds?
Ryan Honary, a 15-year-old innovator, has created an AI-driven platform to quickly detect and predict the growth of environmental hazards. After testing the platform, this project received support from Irvine Ranch Conservancy as well as Orange County Fire Department, motivating him immensely. A demo will then be conducted. This Panel will feature fellow teen researchers and innovators, and showcase their work in tackling environmental conservation in their countries. Echoing LearningPlanet Alliance’s commitment to climate education, the session will end with an open call of action to all youth climate activists, to collectively explore further collaborations with other members of the Alliance through new multi-stakeholder paradigms.
