RE-IMAGINING THE K-12 EDUCATION SYSTEM


As of September 2014, the UK will make computer programming part of its national school curriculum, making it the first G20 country to put coding at the center of education reform.

Inspired by this ambitious policy, we are thrilled to host a thought-provoking gathering to re-imagine “Skills for the 21st Century.” Together with international policymakers, business leaders, and today’s most exciting education entrepreneurs, we will explore how to fix one of the most disturbing challenges faced by this generation: youth unemployment and the shortage of job seekers with relevant skills.

During the day, we will re-imagine a basic school schedule and the new approaches needed to teach each subject. In parallel, you can drop in and watch kids from London schools gaining skills for the future by creating a Codecademy app, building a Kano computer, completing a Slate Science math lesson, writing a Storybird book, and practicing the piano with Tonara
