Youth Program

Disruption is happening at every age and in every industry thanks to the rapid acceleration of change brought about by technology. That’s why we here at Disrupted have developed programs which span beyond the core conference to engage our youth – the workforce of the future.

 

 

Disrupted Youth Event – Thursday, January 30

Location: Canadian Museum for Human Rights

The Disrupted Youth Event will provide grade 8, 9 and 10 students with hands-on, fun-filled learning workshops led by education and industry experts to guide participants though the day’s activities to encourage STEM and cyber learning, and is designed for students with limited tech experience.

 

Program

9:00 am – 12:00 pm:

Social Media for Social Good

This program is designed to introduce students to human rights by using social media as a platform to build empathy, promote change and become active citizens in the future of work. Students will begin their day by discovering some of the stories within the Museum’s exhibits through clues while using a variety of social media platforms to share these stories online. Students will collaboratively create social media posts using critical thinking and citizenship skills. 

 

12:30 pm – 1:30 pm

Creativity Breaks Down Barriers

David Usher, founder of Reimagine AI and lead singer of Moist, will present his intelligent digital creation Ophelia – a virtual being who learns from her conversations with humans. The creativity and innovation behind artificial intelligence holds promise for a better world where human rights can be universally respected.

Students will have the opportunity to interact with Ophelia, who is also currently on display at the Canadian Museum of Science and Technology in Ottawa. They will also learn about the Climate Clock, which Usher co-created to track climate change and global warming in ways that ordinary people can understand. It has been presented at the UN and at the G7 Summit.
