What Does a Robot-Proof Education Look Like?
No one envies the complex choices and tradeoffs school administrators face in the years ahead as they navigate monumental decisions related to student outcomes and fiscal stability. Dwarfing many of these issues, however, is the catastrophic risk of leaving so many young students vulnerable to the tidal wave of change from exponentially advancing technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), automation, and robotics. Join an open discussion about actions we can undertake now to strengthen the connection between school and work so that our students are better prepared for a world increasingly defined by a labor force in flux.
