October 24, 2012
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
Education. How do we equip our kids to succeed in a tech-driven world? Kim Jones/ Curriki: "Textbooks are becoming as obsolete as the rotary dial phone" Kim Saxe/Nueva School: “The Internet and technology (such as Skype) supports the teaching of more open-ended and complex projects than ever before.” Curtis Johnson/“Disrupting Class” author: “The role of teachers will see profound changes – all good… from a qualified source of knowledge dispensing information to largely passive students (in rows of desks) to planners, facilitators, and coaches in the learning process.” Neeru Khosla/CK-12 Foundation: “We no longer need textbooks.” John Mayerhofer/SAP: “Technology will enable schools and other institutions, essentially experience providers, to cost-effectively facilitate personalized student-centered learning for today's learners and an additional 3 billion new minds.” Join us for Future of Education: Teaching Kids to Think
