Location: Conference Centre: World Forum Yangtze Room
Hosted by: Verizon
This workshop will bring together great minds from various disciplines: the arts, media, NGOs and non-profits, technologists, and visionaries who will develop a set of 5G-enabled solutions that level the educational playing field for students—able, disabled and special needs--in classrooms in low-income communities.
The workshop will provide an immersive journey into a typical underserved classroom in America. Workshop participants will experience first-hand the issues students and teachers face and the role that 5G could play in solving these issues. Participants will be prompted to think about potential 5G solutions via a world of “what if’s” as voiced through students, teachers, their parents and others. This will serve as a jumping off point for small groups to brainstorm even more potential ideas. From this brainstorm a small subset of 10 individuals will be selected to work alongside Verizon’s Corporate Social Responsibility team to potentially deliver these solutions to actual classrooms that are a part of the Verizon Innovative Learning program.
Please note: this is strictly volunteerism work with Verizon and is not meant to drive revenue for either Verizon or the individual participants.
