Science suggests that we have explored only five to seven percent of the ocean floor and less than one-half percent of its entirety. Much like the ocean, the future landscape of education is unexplored and an intriguing unknown. The opportunity for us as educators, designers, and researchers is to embrace the role of an explorer and create change through our work in order to shape, rather than adapt to, the shifting educational landscape. We must explore this opportunity through innovation in research, evolution in design, and transformation in pedagogy, specifically focused on the aesthetic qualities of the learner experience. In this presentation I will share the design and research evolution of three contemporary projects that have impacted more than 25 million learners and educators around the world. These projects range from a seven-continent expedition focused on the intersection of education and sustainability, an e-assessment environment for world language learning, and a platform designed to afford students and teachers with a global voice for reflection and discussion. Ultimately, it is my hope that these narratives will stimulate discussion about our roles as designers, educators, and researchers in the fields of instructional design, learning sciences, and interaction design. #TCCReEd
