Class of 2032 is a longitudinal project designed to facilitate and capture ideas about the future school experience. Through a series of documentary films and ideation workshops, the project engages students, parents, and educators in a conversation about the opportunities and challenges to formal and informal learning environments of young children growing up with increased access to information and digital technology.
The Class of 2032 Project includes the production of a series of documentary films that explore relevant topics in our conversation about the future school experience. The first installment, Class of 2032: Schooling for a Digital Culture explores the participatory nature of digital technology and examines how young children interact with online information through services like YouTube and Google.
The Class of 2032 workshop engages students, parents, and educators in a conversation about the future school experience. During an initial prototype phase, it generated over 1500 unique ideas captured in our 2016/17 poster summary. Made in partnership with Xennial Digital, a free mobile app for tablet devices is availble from the Apple and Android app store to assist educators in facilitating the Class of 2032 workshop at their instition.
