Your Own Home via Zoom OR

What is Digital-Social transformation? (Beyond technology, how is society being transformed as a result of our world becoming more “digital”?)

Three of the major disruptive trends creating digital-social transformation (and three examples of their effects):

Cross-global “datafying” of human behavior
Affects community-forming and allegiances
I. is becoming a full member of the human community
Affects (or takes over) our decision-making process
Our “Reality” becomes equally physical/virtual
Affects our sense of time and place

disAbility, diversity and privilege. How to design a world that embraces differences – with Nechama Katan

Your Own Home via Zoom OR

We will talk about how people with "disAbilities" add value and privilege to the diversity discussion. Supports and services for the disabled focus on what they can't do and what they will probably never do well. This includes the non-neurotypical, learning disAbled as well as those with visual disabilities. Let's explore together a world that sees everyone as having gifts and that helps people focus on those gifts. Sometimes that world requires providing support for many traditionally "normal" things that typical people do without thinking. The presentation will be interactive and hands on, so bring a project that you are working on and be prepared to think about Ability differently.
