Part of the Future Education Forum 2018 agenda

The EdTech-track in Mindtrek is organized in cooperation with the Future Education Forum. The forum is bringing Chinese educators that are interested in the Finnish educational system to Tampere to learn and hear how Finland is utilizing the newest technological developments in education combined with the Finnish pedagogical approach.

In the event itself we will be seeing the hottest Finnish EdTech startups as well as already well known operatives. The EdTech-track will have a dedicated exhibition area for companies to present their solutions in detail to the Finnish-Chinese audience.

Mindtrek EdTech 2018 is partnering with the Finnish Education Learning and Development Centre and the City of Tampere.

  • Digitalization continues to hold an unprecedented promise to help us organize ourselves better, and differently. However, that promise does not become reality by default. If we want digitalization delivered and if we want it delivered in a way it stands to augment our cities, our communities and our individual lives, we will need to get organized. We will need A New Digital Deal. In practical terms, the building blocks of such a New Digital Deal are also the building blocks of effective smart city strategies as well as the larger innovation journeys many communities find themselves contemplating. What does good digitalization governance look like? What does it take to conduct the Art of Connecting Everything? What does Good Design mean in this domain? And how to prepare for the skills and competencies we need in order to manage the digitalization journey effectively?

  • This presentation proposes a novel approach to conceptualising twin-cities. To date, close-by cities are mostly analysed from the perspective of how to connect them physically, mainly providing the advancement of mobility options; there are significant local, national and supranational financial incentives for this. This talk describes that cities can also be effectively connected digitally by harmonising public services and exchanging data in real time across databases exemplified by cities of Estonia and Finland. The challenge with digitalising cities is that without joint standards and a harmonised approach, two close-by cities may become digital islands, i.e. everything is digital within the cities but not across the cities. That is, two cities can effectively produce a non-digital macro-region where the best way is to use cash and analogue services. In the field of ICT, there are hundreds of standards, and picking different ones could be compared to having one city with left-hand traffic and another one with right-hand in the most extreme cases.

  • The Nordic Institute for Interoperability Solutions (NIIS) is an association founded jointly by Finland and Estonia. Its mission is to develop open e-governance solutions, kicking off with the X-Road technology used nationwide in the Estonian public administration and in the Suomi.fi Data Exchange Layer service. This is probably the first time in the world when a joint special purpose organization of two countries develops an open source software using agile software development methods. The aim of the conference talk is to tell about the X-Road related collaboration between Finland and Estonia, activating the developer community and future possibilities of the collaboration model.

    Topic of Speech: Empowering Bike Sharing Systems

    Light Electric Vehicles are the most important vehicle segment of 21st century. Bike production has been doubled compared to car production over the last 50 years. Sharing economy is gradually becoming an integral part of our life, and as time goes by it will become even more significant. Internet of Things facilitated the ability of people to find things that they once had to buy or rent or lease for days or years at a time. COMODULE is a technology company that develops connectivity solutions for the bicycle and scooter industry. COMODULE´s sharing ecosystem combines all technological aspects into one core product. This includes: telematics hardware, cloud server, online platform and mobile application. Through one single platform operators & municipalities are able to control and monitor a whole fleet of sharing vehicles. Meanwhile, the users can locate and ride the nearest vehicle with a tap of a button from their phone.

  • There's a good deal of attention being paid, especially tomorrow, to Europe's new data privacy laws. These laws are important for protecting individual rights and freedoms in the present age. Yet the same data we collectively seek to protect also has a myriad of benefits to individuals, organizations and society. Dr. Goggins is the leader of the “Global Consent Manager” project, which helps people to identify trusted websites to share their data with, and also a researcher who builds tools to identify patterns of computer mediated human behavior. His projects include a serious game called "Mission Hydro Sci” where he builds and analyzes student logs to predict who will struggle with scientific concepts. His serious games tools enable teachers to focus on helping students navigate frustrations with learning in the moments when they face choices to either continue to struggle and, ultimately learn, or give up in a science class. His other projects include an open source software health metrics project, in the Linux Foundation Working Group, "CHAOSS", which uses source code changes, mailing lists, and discussion forums from open source software projects to indicate different types of project health. Among those are indicators of a project's effective cultivation of diversity and inclusion among contributors. Candidly, most open source projects remain overwhelmingly dominated by men. Analysis of your data may be an agent for the culture changes many seek. But this is enormously difficult, but the process begins with making project health along a number of dimensions visible.
