Choose to learn, learn to choose
Adam Dorfman is the founder of If When Then, a learning platform aiming to decentralise higher education and offer learners the opportunity to gain valuable skills and mentorship through passionate and dedicated learning communities.
As a keynote speaker, mentor, workshop host and judge at Eduhack Tampere, Adam has had a unique opportunity to get intimate with participants and organizers alike. He has found that there is clearly an interest in new learning communities and that this interest is driven by students’ practical experiences and a desire to access new networks to gain exposure to new models of learning not usually presented to them through traditional methods.
Adam has been touring Europe with his talk The Future of Jobs, delivering insightful truths about Platform Thinking, Blockchain and Artificial Intelligence to understand its limitations, preparing tomorrow’s workforce for jobs that don’t yet exist. His experience of sharing a few highlights of his presentation at Eduhack to his youngest audience yet, is that everybody asks the same questions. Interest for impacts of AI on our future is shared by both young and old audiences, but the biggest problem is that few people understand the scope of its opportunities.
Keynote speaker – Adam Dorfman
In a knowledge intensive world and one in which automation will replace many routine jobs, curiosity will become an increasingly important tool. When the learner has the perception of choice and autonomy to explore what interests them most, to pursue a desire, their engagement in the content is increased dramatically. The power of the If When Then learning platform, which enables learners to quickly discover the best learning communities, conferences and influencers that adapt to industry changes, will only grow over time as it helps learners to select their paths. This is the basis on which the If When Then Platform is built.
Adam sees Educraftor as a valuable regional partner and early adopter of his platform and hopes to help them build their reputation in providing high quality content to both regional and international communities. By continuing to push the threshold of learning through events and services such as Eduhack, both If When Then and Educraftor hope to deliver innovation and educational development that better prepares learning communities for the Future of Work. Step by step we can change the world and help to build communities that focus on adding value to the chain of learning
