Equipping 21st Century Learners to Stay Ahead of Technological Change
WHEN education fails to keep pace with technology, the result is inequality. Without the skills to stay useful as innovations arrive a societies ability to succeed is greatly diminished. How do we as educators, employers, policymakers and others contribute to this growing concern? What can we do and how do we better prepare for learners for change in turbulent times? What should we be teaching students in our K12 and College systems and are we preparing people who are prepared to contribute meaningfully to the US workforce? This Educelerate event should provide a lively panel, conversations, and collaboration opportunities with fellow education and technology stakeholders in Los Angeles. Schedule and Panelist Bios coming soon!
