Kids nowadays are growing up in the midst of enormous shifts in culture, society, and the environment. Bangkok, along with many surrounding Southeast Asian capitals, is urbanizing at breakneck speed. How do kids think about the future of their own neighborhood in the midst of constant change?
We developed the Alt Visions workshop to teach young students (ages 9 to 11) how emerging technologies such as AI, AR, and 3D printing will change the future of their cities. After the workshop, we crowdsourced ideas on how they want to use these technologies to affect change in their neighborhood and design their own after school program at Bangkok 1899.
These ideas will be used as themes for the coming Alt Visions AR Exhibit, where students can see their visions come to life through Spark AR.
