Rethinking and capitalizing on the potential of learning in the 21st century and the 4th revolution: this is the theme of the 4th edition of Tablettistes which will be held on January 6 in Ottawa.

This one-day bilingual conference will bring together young people, experts, innovators and visionaries from the world of education, technology and media. The primary idea is simple: to create tangible opportunities for dialogue between content producers and education experts.

Les Tablettistes put forward a panel of experts from various backgrounds and disciplines. The varied program will combine conferences, meetings and practical activities. Four major themes will be explored

  • The meeting of arts and sciences
  • Creative opportunities
  • The magic of the imagination
  • Design to fail, learn to succeed
Also, workshops on virtual reality, an introduction to design thinking and collective animation frame by frame.
