We are living in a time of extreme and rapid innovation in technology, causing radical shifts in the workforce and, consequently, drastic changes are needed in how we educate students. Technologists, futurists, and business leaders alike are referring to this fundamental shift as the next Industrial Revolution. We call it the Age of Agility, and we are calling for changes in education that match the forces of change in the economy.
Please join Empower Illinois and America Succeeds for the Age of Agility Summit Illinois on Thursday, August 9. This event will present insights and perspectives from business, education, and policy leaders on what the Future of Work means for restructuring the way we deliver education – helping us crowdsource strategies and solutions to take action within our state and across the country.
Children only get one chance at a quality education. We must do everything we can to ensure that they get the education they need and deserve to succeed in the future.
For more information and to register for this event, please visit the America Succeeds event page.
