  • Join us on Thursday, Feb. 4 for an online discussion of the short story, “Speaker” by Simon Brown. This story is the first 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. 

    Author Simon Brown and Iveta Silova, professor and director of the Center for Advanced Studies in Global Education at MLFTC, will lead the conversation, while Punya Mishra, professor and associate dean of scholarship and innovation at MLFTC, will moderate. To read the short story in advance of the discussion, visit Future Tense after Jan. 30. 

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