Deborah Keyek-Franssen

Keyek-Franssen, a trailblazer in the field of technology and higher education, will deliver our keynote address. With over two decades of experience, Keyek-Franssen has shaped policies, championed equity and transformed classrooms through innovative tech integration. The insights provided in her keynote — There Should Have Been Hoverboards. We Got AI Instead — will inspire and challenge us to think critically about the future.

“It's hard not to be nostalgic for a future that never materialized when we are living a present defined by technological disruption occurring at a rate that feels beyond human scale,” she said. “Realizing that the forecasts of our past are not our current reality can help us replace the effort of prediction-making to one of preparation. Let’s call on the past to hoverboard smoothly forward.”

COLTT is thrilled to host a collaboratively curated pop-up at COLTT 2024 with the Media Archaeology Lab (MAL). MAL is a community-driven hub for preserving and exploring the history of technology. Through our COLTT/MAL pop-up, “cross-disciplinary, experimental research, teaching, and creative practice converge, using one of the largest collections in the world of still-functioning obsolete media.”
