Preparing Students for an Uncertain Future of Work

Let’s face it. Book smarts probably won’t mean as much in a future workforce more supported by increasingly smart machines. Future workers will need to adapt and quickly learn new skills in order to succeed. How can we help students prepare for this future of unknowns? How can we prepare them not only for college and career, but also to create fulfilling lives as adults? Between a futurist, superintendent, neuroscientist and ed-tech start-up insider, we have some ideas and we’re ready to share.

  1. Develop understanding of how and why readiness will need to be redefined in the future
  2. Gain knowledge of the trends shaping the future of work and readiness
  3. Think critically about what a new foundation for readiness could be and what it means for education stakeholders
