    Join us for an online discussion of the short story, “The Trolley Solution” by Shiv Ramdas. This story is the third in a series for Future Tense Fiction presented by Slate and Arizona State University’s Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College, as part of its Learning Futures and Principled Innovation work. 

    This Future Tense Fiction series aims to explore how learning experiences — of all kinds — will be shaped by technology and other future forces, along with the moral, ethical and social challenges this will entail. 

    Shiv Ramdas and Katina Michael, professor in the School for the Future of Innovation in Society and School of Computing, Informatics and Decision Systems Engineering at Arizona State University, will lead the conversation, while Punya Mishra, professor and associate dean of scholarship and innovation at MLFTC, will moderate. 


    Future Tense is a partnership of Slate, New America, and Arizona State University that examines emerging technologies, public policy, and society.
