Preparing Future Innovators for the IoT Era

IoT, Maker and STEM. We read about these every day, but what do they mean for education? Today, everything is smart, connected, multi-functional and increasingly complex. This phenomenon is the Internet of Things (IoT), and it’s impacting the workforce in a big way. Because of the IoT, today’s students – tomorrow’s innovators – will need to be prepared for increasingly complex jobs. And the skills and tools they will need for these jobs are different from what they’ve needed in the past. Join STEM, Maker and IoT movement leaders from industry and education to explore how to leverage Maker and STEM best practices inside and outside the classroom to help prepare our students for the IoT.

Learning Objectives

  1. How will the Internet of Things impact the jobs of the future and the skills required for these jobs?
  2. What tools and resources are available for educators to prepare students?
  3. How can we leverage the Maker movement to help prepare our students for the jobs of tomorrow?
