Students and the Creative Economy
How are you preparing your students for the creative economy? What do you define as the "creative economy"?
During SXSWedu 2016, educators Erica Muhl, Mark Martin, and Villy Wang will be engaging in this question. See below for their session info. Join the discussion by sharing your own thoughts and examples in this discussion.
Tuesday, March 8
11:00 AM – 1:00 PM CST
Description:According to the Department of Labor, 65% of current students will spend their careers in jobs that have yet to be invented. To succeed in tomorrow’s workforce, we must equip students with the kind of skills that will never appear on a standardized test — creativity, adaptability, collaborative decision-making and problem-solving. In this session you will hear from experts who are approaching this type of education in a variety of ways. Then, we will challenge you to work in small groups to define other strategies for how we can ensure our students are ready for the creative economy.
