Opening General Session: Envisioning the Skills Students Need: 2030

Opening General Session

Monday, April 1, 2019


Today’s kindergarten class will graduate in 2030 after experiencing a world of rapid technological change. What will the world look like as the class of 2030 leaves our education systems? How do we prepare them now for success in that world? The CoSN 2019 Conference: Envision 2030: Leadership for Learning, will explore how we provide the class of 2030 with the skills they will need for success. We will focus on the role technology leaders play in envisioning, shaping and leading the school system transformation to support student needs. Come and continue the conversations started at CoSN 2018; Exponential Change: Designing Learning in the 4th Industrial Revolution.
