Hello everyone,
I hope you are doing well. In this October issue (one day into November) I highlight my trips to the UAE, learning opportunities in Boston and Switzerland, and a new newsletter and docuseries that Iโ€™m enjoying.
Welcome, Jeni! Iโ€™m glad you are here.

Conferences ๐Ÿ“›
I attended the GITEX Modern Education conference on October 9 at the Dubai World Trade Center.
Dr. Ben Goertzel, Chairman & Chief Scientist of SingularityNET, answers questions from a student.

My main takeaway was that we need to align learning with modern work by facilitating for students interdisciplinary, project-based challenges driven by real-world problems that require technology-driven solutions.
I was also fortunate to attend the IB Global Conference from October 24-26 in Abu Dhabi. Here I focused on the intersection of design, learning, and work, attending sessions on the IB Career-related Program. Itโ€™s a fantastic program that develops in students career-ready soft skills, experiences, and knowledge.
Tatiana joined me and we had a good time.
Learning Engineering ๐Ÿค”
If I could afford to, for one year I would do this.
HIM ๐Ÿจ
Our son, Gabriel, is considering his options after high school in 2021. Currently, he is exploring business studies at Hotel Institute Montreux. I admire his efforts to align his interests with his education for his future success.
Behavior ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ
I subscribed to the newsletter Bahavioral Scientist to learn more about why we do the things we do. In it, I read this conversation about how habits drive our behaviors and understanding that can help us get things done and still enjoy happiness.
Bill's Brain ๐Ÿง 
Inside Bill's Brain: Decoding Bill Gates
I am watching this docuseries and enjoying learning about how brilliant people respond to what they see.
