The 4th Industrial Revolution is here. Boundaries are blurred between the physical, digital, and biological worlds. More than half the jobs in today’s economy did not exist in their present format twenty years ago. As educators, we have the opportunity to shape the future. Emerging trends for K-12 education includes augmented reality, adaptive computing, synthetic biology, wearable technology, artificial intelligence, and robotics. In this prelude to Sylvia’s six (yes six!) sessions at FETC, we will discuss:
- What will these look like in the real world, and how will they impact K-12 education?
- What education practices will prepare students for jobs that do not exist yet?
- What is the role of ethics and social emotional learning?
- What are some of the stellar practices that are working today?
