Session description

Could a quantum shift in time and space use in education change everything? The Hybrid Logistics Project took aim during the pandemic at defeating the time inequities of the historic schooling model by using algorithmic logic to uberize campus and virtual learning. Discover real personalization and solve your teacher shortage.

Purpose & objective

Imagine AI that knows when a learner is ready for the next teaching moment. Imagine setting meetings without needing to input the date or time that then auto-cohorts students into class learning moments based on their pace of learning. Imagine what this does for personalization but also the impact on your networks and other technologies. This presentation will discuss the current design imperative of Hybrid Logistics technology and what it means for transforming space and time use to meet emerging needs of schools. With intelligent calendaring, schools can change learning pathways and save teachers time, but readiness to make that change has aspects to be explored. In the Franklin 10 Room at the Marriot hosted by Cisco, attendees of this session can join a live modeling of the way learning would flow under A.I. See video of this activity here:
