  2. Gary Stager - The Case Against Innovation

    To join LIVE Q&A sessions or workshops with this speaker (and many more!) upgrade to a ‘Full Festival Pass’ now: https://attendify.co/relearn-2020-8dt8iOX The presenter began teaching children to program computers nearly 40 years ago, led professional development in the first 1:1 “laptop schools" in 1990, created one of the world’s first online graduate programs in 1998, and co-authored what has become known as the bible of the maker movement in schools.

    Despite being at the vanguard of interventions that may now be considered “on-trend,” Gary will make the case that innovation is the wrong objective for education, complete with perverse incentives, that do little to make the world a better place for kids. In this lively, provocative, and heartfelt presentation, Dr. Stager will share different scenarios for the future of education - ones that respect history, recognize the power of computing to amplify human potential, and prepare children to thrive in an uncertain future.

  5. Shihad’s Frontman Is Home Again - Days Like These - ABC Radio

    Will rock god Jon Toogood surrender? Or will the Shihad singer keep fighting his fate? Jon built a career as frontman for the New Zealand band Shihad, infusing stadium-sized songs with his avowed atheism. But when he fell in love with a Muslim woman, he was forced to wrestle with his identity and belief — and forces way beyond his control. From Wellington to Melbourne and Los Angeles and back, Jon charts his journey through an epic tale of love, identity, empathy and belief… plus a few things he could never have seen coming.
