Saturday, March 30, 10:30 am – 11:45 am | Preparing Students for the Future
As smart technologies and shifting employment structures reshape the future of work, educators and advocates must rethink the skills and knowledge students will need to be ready for the future. This interactive session will encourage school board members and other participants to consider how they might advocate to better prepare students for the future. Using KnowledgeWorks’ research on the future of readiness for life after high school, participants will consider opportunities that will engage students and serve them well into the future.
Saturday, March 30, 1:30 pm – 2:45 pm | Shaping the Future of American Public Education: What’s Next for Changemakers?
Changing social expectations, alternative funding resources, and increased policy flexibility are shifting the education reform landscape. Despite growing urgency to adapt to rapidly changing times, we face deep questions about how our collective efforts might support or undermine public education. This session will highlight trends shaping the future of education changemaking, explore possible futures, and allow participants to apply strategic questions about the future of education changemaking to their contexts.
