Find your place in the future of work

Almost 500 people explored how the world of work and learning is evolving at the DisruptED: The Future of Work, a two-day conference organized by the Information and Communication Technologies Association of Manitoba Feb. 1 and 2 at the RBC Convention Centre Winnipeg.

ICTAM co-hosted the conference with the Manitoba Institute of Trades and Technologies, Red River College, the University of Manitoba, the Canadian Museum for Human Rights and the Manitoba Association of School Superintendents.

Featuring a diverse range of keynote speakers, on-stage panels, the attendee-guided ‘Unconference’ and the Interactive Playground, the event focused on technological change and what it means for our work lives and education.

Ryan Klassen, ICTAM’s board president and vice-president of business solutions with Bell MTS, said DisruptED is all about jumpstarting the conversation about the future of work and learning.

“We’re delving deeply into the conversation about technology-driven disruptions that are changing the workplace and changing our educational institutions, our government policy and the way each one of us starts to engage with the world around us,” Klassen said. “The relationship between teachers, students and the broader institutions is evolving to reflect the realities of a more connected and volatile world.”

“It’s about getting educators, youth and industry together in the same room to have this conversation about how we prepare for the future,” said ICTAM CEO Kathy Knight. “We have to get out of our echo chambers. If we’re all just sitting around as industry types talking about what needs to happen or talking about what has to happen with education but not engaging with educators, with government, with young people, then we’re not going to be able to facilitate the kind of change and transformation we need to in order to thrive in the future. It’s really about the sense of community and the ability for people to connect, and having a forum for people to learn about new types of tech and then take those tools with them back into the work and education world.”

There was a common message from many DisruptED presenters: If you think your work doesn’t already involve tech, think again.
