Sahra-Josephine Hjorth, CEO and co-founder of CanopyLAB, interviewed by futurist Trond Arne Undheim. 

In this conversation, we talk about empowering learners, and about blended learning, moving beyond screen time to Virtual immersionm AI/AR – how to use tech the right way. We discuss tackling scaling challenges in social learning, EdTech post-COVID-19. We cover how Sahra collated and digitized more than 50+ ways of classroom learning in a teacher’s toolbox. How to plug the 21st-century skills gap? The next decade's learning reality.

The takeaway is that social learning is much talked about but poorly understood. How could it be that Sahra-Josephine Hjorth -- in 2020 no less -- is among the few to describe each of the social and pedagogical components that go into teaching, this ancient practice that is so important? It boggles the mind.
