Columbus, Ohio

Join Battelle for Kids’ Senior Director of Research, Mike Nicholson, as he leads a session for administrators and teachers: Future Ready: Skills, Knowledge, and Dispositions Essential for Today's Learners. Developments in the education sciences, globalization, the economy, and technology require us to deeply consider the skills, knowledge, and dispositions essential for today’s learners to be future ready – prepared, passionate, and purposeful in their learning, work, and life. An emerging body of research makes a clear and compelling case: we must come together at the local level to envision and design our school systems for 21st century learning to make these student outcomes more intentional. This interactive session will explore the research, implications, challenges and opportunities for truly realizing the power and promise of future ready education for every learner.
