It's A Project Based World

Bob Lenz presents a compelling vision for the future of learning given the realities of our project ­based world.
Increasingly people are joining a working world that encourages freelance or “gigs” rather than full­time
employment. Those who do work in full­time jobs often organize their work into projects. Bob will cover
the economic realities, human needs, and social justice imperative of preparing students, teachers and
leaders for an increasingly project­ based world.
