Unity is Our Hope for the Future
January 14, 2021
Hosted by Orb
In this inaugural podcast, Orb takes us on a journey of learning from stories that engage our imaginations and explore new ideas. Orb is joined by UNESCO’s Assistant Director-General for Education, Stefania Giannini, the music of Jim Papoulis performed by the Young People’s Chorus of New York City, and young adults from around the planet. Events in our world over the past year have challenged people everywhere to grow from lessons about empathy, resilience, and hope. Planet Classroom would like to thank the Young People’s Chorus of New York City for their Give Us Hope performance.

The Planet is a Classroom where learning together brings us together.
Planet Classroom brings together musicians, dancers, video game creators, filmmakers, learning innovators and emerging technologists from all over the world to entertain, educate and engage us.
Why do we need Planet Classroom? The world is facing many problems and we believe Youth are helping to solve them. Every show will feature youth voices sharing their passions, their ideas and their solutions for a better future.
Orb is Planet Classroom’s virtual guide. Orb is a resource for everyday facts and figures and real-time information. Orb speaks in the present tense. Orb has a number of catch phrases and questions Orb likes to ask. We will learn more about Orb with each new show. Can Orb speak foreign languages? Does Orb have the capacity to understand any intellectual task or is Orb limited to those tasks Orb does now. Is Orb an Android? Is Orb empathetic and kind? Is Orb masculine or feminine? Can Orb reason and learn? We will use our imaginations to determine what the true character of Orb means to each one of us.
