What is reality? I look at different ways of asking the question: real vs artificial, real vs fake, real vs virtual, real vs illusory, real vs delusion. I talk about what counts as real in our world, and the role we play in creating reality. I tal;k about how the changing nature of reality also means a changing nature of learning, moving from the idea of remembering content to the idea of creating our own knowledge as we go.
