The connected classroom is more than a place that fosters “digital literacy."

The foundation for how students interact reflexively and with each other, as well as how technology reciprocates is built on the interaction of many modes of learning. Discovering how they can work together to create an effective, supportive environment that scales beyond the classroom is the key to connectivity in education.

In this talk, we will discuss how the civic & experiential engagement models overlap, and how that impacts the ground-up approach to the digital transformation in education.

  • © Livia Veneziano 2013 | SXSWEdu ‘14 Proposal 4 As classrooms integrate technologies into their everyday lessons, we should take a close look at the systems and services that we come in contact with and learn with. Single Focus Classroom Transformation Focus (Multi-Focus Field) Customizability, personal learning style & preference can be explored using the same lesson plans, and alternate learning environments can be experimented with.

  • © Livia Veneziano 2013 | SXSWEdu ‘14 Proposal 5 Conventional “ability” changes from fitting one learning model, to customizing the mode of learning through the introduction of connectivity with systems and peers. In this context, we will discuss the role of MOOCs and wide-reaching learning platforms. Focusing on accessibility and non-traditional audiences helps grow networks of people who otherwise cannot access community circles. Immersive Displaced Immersion

In this talk, we will discuss how the civic & experiential engagement models overlap, and how that impacts the ground-up approach to the digital transformation in education.

  • © Livia Veneziano 2013 | SXSWEdu ‘14 Proposal 9 Interfaces, Accessibility & Superheroes UX Magazine, SXSW & Google Colleague Yvonne So and I met in 2011 and found a common interest in alternative interaction models and accessibility. Together we wrote and published an article about accessibility in UX Magazine and went on to present our point of view at SXSW the spring of 2013 and at Google’s headquarters June. We are excited and honored to share our thoughts and learn from others who use new and old technologies to access the digital and spatial world around them.
  • © Livia Veneziano 2013 | SXSWEdu ‘14 Proposal 10 Accessibility is more than the additional features that each platform provides - it is necessarily a part of each step in conceiving and designing a service. While many tools today are targeted towards an audience with particular needs, a truly universal design practice allows new or re-applied interaction models to be a part of everyone’s experience, and opens up new opportunities to advance experiences and create new standards. An accessible PowerPoint of the original SXSW presentation is available here: http://www.slideshare.net/liviaven/superheroes-sxsw-2013 Please contact me for the revised presentation given at Google in June.
