STELAR Webinar: Educational Implications of future work at the Human-Technology Frontier
Join authors of "Building the Foundational Skills Needed for Success in Work at the Human-Technology Frontier," for the third of four webinars in our series exploring the educational and social implications of living, learning and working in a future driven by technology.
Part 3: Educational Implications of Work at the Human-Technology Frontier
February 22, 2018 2:00-3:00 pm ET
What Career Competencies should K-12 students develop to prepare for success in work at the Human-Technology Frontier?
The worker of the future will require a deep knowledge of science, technology, and engineering coupled with the technical skills and understanding of how computers, robots, and other machines work. This technological grounding, however, will not be enough to succeed. Optimal new workers will be curious, self-directed, and resilient. They will be lifelong learners willing to be disruptive and innovative, while also being cooperative and interpersonally competent. They will think outside the box; solve problems and risk failure; work in dynamic, cross-disciplinary teams; and lead those teams to consensus. All of their work will be characterized by insight, interpretation, diligence, persistence, and cooperation. Join the STELAR’s Joyce Malyn-Smith and ITEST PIs as they discuss the STEM Career Competencies that students should develop in K-8 to set them on a pathway towards success in work at the Human-Technology Frontier.

*Please note that while registration is not limited, there are only 100 seats available. Joining the webinar day-of will be on a first come, first served basis. Registration does not guarantee you a spot in the webinar, as we must allow some level of over-subscription to ensure that those who are able to listen are not locked out because of those who register but do not attend. If the 100 seats are filled and you are not able to listen live, a recording and archive of webinar materials will be posted to the website the day after the event.*
