About the session: Finding your purpose in life in the age of AI.

The world is changing, faster than ever.

What hasn’t changed, however, is our desire as human beings for purpose, connection and meaning.

At this special event hosted by Townsville Catholic Education, Aaron will facilitate an engaging session focused on helping you find, clarify or refresh your life’s purpose in the age of AI.

Expect to learn about:

  • Insights into the cutting edge of future focused education and AI.
  • Discussions around generational trends and how they may impact both job seekers and employers in 2023.
  • Practical ways for schools and educators to adapt to new technologies that will become mainstream in the coming years.
  • Important ethical considerations for educators, students and parents to engage with in this time of flux.

Be prepared to learn about positive intellectual disruptions, practical new tools and new ideas to share around the staff room or at your next BBQ!
