The ASTD-Orange county Chapter program

The ASTD-Orange County meeting officially starts with extended program offerings at 3:00 p.m. with the Keynote session and Networking session, followed by our Monthly Learning Event panel outlined below.

3:00PM-4:00PM with ‘Meet Bina48: Your Humanoid Personal Tutor,” and her creator Bruce Duncan. When Bruce, was asked if he and his team had considered the possibility of a ‘teaching’ attribute for 3-year old Bina48, the answer was a resounding "yes!" We will be the first to see that attribute in a live session at ELCE. Join Bruce Duncan, M.Ed. and Bina48 as we explore and imagine how the “personal tutor” of future might evolve.

4:00 PM – 6:00 PM Members will then engage in a Networking Reception with all the other conference attendees. What a way to expand your networking connections!
