DARE TO SAY IT
Greatness of Dare to Learn lies in its community. Last week we offered a sneak peek to our spirit and upcoming event in Espoo.
Over 60 learning enthusiastics gathered to Otaniemi for one afternoon. First we heard two inspiring keynotes: Antti Kauppi shared his visions about the future of learning and Topi Litmanen from Claned made us wonder what is the role of artificial intelligence in learning. After the speeches we shared questions, ideas and solutions in small group sessions. Themes that sparked up bubbling discussion were collaborative learning, equality of learning, how to spark and keep up the motivation and what is the optimal division of labour in learning between the human brain & artificial intelligence.
For me, the best thing about our “Mini Dare” event was the atmosphere. People stayed after official part, chatting and mingling with old and new friends. With a little help of some sparkling, we managed to connect both people and ideas. I don’t know exactly which are the X factors for inspiring atmosphere. Speakers, facilitation, environment and servings of course did their part, but I believe the most important impact was created by people and their communication. For all of you being there - a big thank you!
Dare to Learn will create a unique community that no one has never seen before. Under our umbrella you will fail, learn and laugh. And we will do it all together.
Communication has a huge effect on learning. Communication is one of the main things we want to focus in our community and in our main event in September. We know that magic happens when people from different backgrounds trust each other, share their own ideas and are open to hear new views. Solutions for tomorrow's challenges can be solved the best by bridging gaps between different learning professionals and other curious future makers.
After 4 months we will scale this small afternoon “Mini Dare” experience into bigger and create a carefully designed, world’s best learning event. Some may say we dream big. I say thinking small never changed the world. Dare to Learn will create a unique community that no one has never seen before. Under our umbrella you will fail, learn and laugh. And we will do it all together. Only question is: do you dare to join us?
