Singularity Expert: Future of Learning

PhD fellow Sahra-Josephine Hjorth has spent the past five years creating analog and digital learning experiments with groundbreaking results. In addition to inventing the first pedagogy for online learning and coining the term “Virtual Immersion Program”, Sahra-Josephine has leveraged her background as a researcher to found CanopyLAB – a leading adaptive learning company headquartered in Copenhagen.Sahra-Josephine is an expert on converging technologies and how these are applied in learning contexts to design personalized and adaptive learning experiences that empower end-users to improve their lives. In her talks, she focuses on AI, Blockchain, and VR & AR. During her PhD research, Sahra-Josephine discovered that in the physical classroom,we learn in more than 40 different ways. This stands in sharp contrast to digital learning settings that on average only enable five different ways of learning. Sahra-Josephine conducts experiments on the CanopyLAB platform to enable all 40, thus pushing the boundaries for learning in the future. Unlike any other EdTech, Sahra-Josephine has led CanopyLAB to an average completion rate of 78%, compared to 7% across the industry.A prominent researcher and leader with a direct and candid attitude, Sahra-Josephine is a sought after expert and speaker, nationally and internationally.
