"Education is the growth of human beings. It's not the acquisition of knowledge or skills." – Yong Zhao, Ph.D.

According to a 2016 World Economic Forum report, advances in technology could displace as many as five million jobs by 2021. Furthermore, according to the same report, 65 percent of children entering elementary school today will, as adults, be working in jobs that currently do not yet exist.

How do we prepare our children for this vast revolution? Can we adapt our current educational model to account for this changing employment landscape and skills requirement? Or do we need to entirely rethink how we educate our children?

Join us for a conversation with Yong Zhao, Ph.D., author and Distinguished Professor in the School of Education at the University of Kansas, on how to educate the next generation in an era dominated by smart machines.
