These strategy guides surface opportunities for K-12 and postsecondary education leaders, as well as employment and community stakeholders, to reshape readiness as the rise of smart machines and the decline of full-time employment impact work.
To surface regional opportunities to redefine readiness for the emerging era, KnowledgeWorks, with support from the Martha Holden Jennings Foundation, held three convenings across Ohio in the fall of 2017. Participants from Southeast, Southwest and Northeast Ohio grappled with what the changing nature of work could mean for their regions. Their reflections and insights are quoted throughout these strategy guides.
The resulting insights and action steps are meant to spark ideas, conversation and first steps toward new approaches to learning that will help stakeholders in Ohio meet the needs of the next generation entering a new world of work. The opportunities highlighted in these strategy guides could also inspire action in other places.
