Future Learning Collaborative Expands Co-Creation Activities Among Higher Ed Institutions
As the Collaborative Celebrates its Second Anniversary, Charter Members Implement Sandboxes for Technology Testing, Insights and Validation
Since the Future Learning Collaborative's launch, higher ed members have tested forthcoming and new Sony technology and helped to influence the design and development of these educational products and solutions, based on real-world input and validation.
In the past year, the focus of the community of practice was to deepen the co-creation between members and Sony, as well as to explore ways to create more active learning opportunities. To meet this goal, member schools have begun implementing "Sandboxes,"
"After two years of consistent dialogue between Sony and the Future Learning Collaborative, we're energized and proud of the community we've built from the group up," explained Satoshi Kanemura, VP of PPSG of America, Sony Electronics Inc. "We value the deeper discussions we've been facilitating as we gain a new level of trust and understanding that goes beyond the traditional customer/vendor relationship. As we look to 2020 and beyond, we seek to collaboratively design the classroom of the future through more extensive sandbox testing. We also remain focused on working together to validate new products and solutions, while surfacing valuable feedback, research and findings that benefit member schools, Sony and the education community at large."
