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.

  • Technologies relating to machine learning and AI have been making fast progress in recent years. The solutions they enable are transforming industries globally. But what can they offer for education? While the Internet may be a source of all information, if not knowledge, it has not revolutionized the way we learn. Structural unemployment, shortage of teachers, under-education and inability to develop new competencies are critical global problems to be solved, and all relate to how to scale up educational resources. Few of us can learn solely by ourselves. We need support. The missing piece is to utilize the capabilities of AI to bring support for each individual learner. This future of personalized learning is closer than we realize. In fact, it is here.

  • 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 name "open source" was generally applied to software 20 years ago, building on 15 years of both the free software and BSD movements. In that time, it has moved from disruption to default. How did that happen? What are the key lessons? What do they mean for a future built on virtualisation, cloud, IoT and blockchain?

  • 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.

  • The Moomin Museum got the brand new premises in June 2017 in Tampere Hall.
    We at Citynomadi created an app for the museum to present the extra content such as fictional dialogues of the Moomin characters, additional historical background and unpublished graphics of the author and artist Tove Jansson. A huge work was done to create the app content: the experts working in this project did storytelling, audio engineering, voice acting, translating and curating.
    Also the indoor location is a starting point for the interactivity we are planning to implement on our concept and the app has a multilingual content for the international visitors in e.g. Japanese.

    First we’ll give the audience an introduction to the world of Moomins and detailed insight into the museum app.

    After the intro there will be a guided tour for 20 visitors of Mindtrek for free. Please download the Moomin Museum app beforehand. The mobile guide will be available for use inside the museum.

    Registration for the tour coming soon..

  • World needs millions of teachers each year, how do we train them all and the existing ones? EdTech solutions are trying to answer for the call of quality education, but apps won’t solve problems themselves, teachers are the key players using technology. LessonApp is developed for teachers to help their everyday life.

  • In the Spring of 2018 Futurice accepted a research project to test using a humanoid robot in speech therapy with autistic children, working with the Satakunta hospital district. Alongside technical challenges the project presented many for design. Seeking solutions to these challenges led to the development of an open source design framework for social robotics. In this talk Minja Axelsson, the lead designer in the project and the author of the framework, presents the framework and the case. The talk is co-presented by Momo the Robot, a custom InMoov humanoid robot built and programmed by Futurice. Momo was used in the research project.

  • 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.

  • This talk is about the research challenges in delivering immersive visual experience and the opportunities that CIVIT, the Centre for immersive Visual Technologies, offers for addressing these challenges. The ultimate aim for immersive visual technologies is to convincingly reproduce reality and to relay visual information in a natural way. To help the research community in reaching these goals, Tampere University of Technology established CIVIT in 2015. CIVIT’s main purpose is to provide expertise and facilities for studying and utilizing emerging visual technologies and the related new user experience with the aim to enhance the existing and to develop new scientific and industrial applications.
