Breaking the boundaries of immersive & experiential learning through emergent media. Emergent media is transforming the way people learn and convene. An extraordinary opportunity exists to lead the change and develop the framework surrounding this shift. The Game Change Summit was the convening of a community of interest including leading experts from academia, business and technology to accelerate the convergence of revolutionary technologies with the science of pedagogy.
The USS Grunion was a Gato-class submarine named for a small fish of the silversides family, indigenous to the western American coast. Under the command of Lieutenant Commander Mannert L. Abele, she launched on December 22nd, 1941 with 70 crew members aboard. On July 30, 1942, the submarine reported intensive antisubmarine activity and was ordered back to Dutch Harbor Naval Operating Base in the Aleutian Islands off of mainland Alaska. The Grunion was never heard from nor seen again.
Abele and his brothers launched a hunt for the Grunion and in August, 2006, armed with heavy duty side scan sonar, about a mile down in the Aleutian chain, the team located an object that appeared to be the right size and shape for the vessel. Then in August of 2007, armed with an ROV containing many cameras and lights they went back and on August 17 found the wreck of the Grunion at a depth of a little over 1000 meters.
