The Future of Learning: It’s Already Happening


Although we are not able to predict the future, it’s exciting (and sometimes surprising) to see how many of the things we think of as science fiction, become science fact. From self-driving cars to augmented and virtual reality, this session will highlight some of the ways that technology has shaped our world – and what that means for our children. How can we prepare them for a future that we can’t predict? And what already exists in our world that we should already be embracing as part of their educational experience? In addition to these big ideas, we’ll explore ways that NIST is preparing your children for this technology rich world – already!

This session has been developed, and will be facilitated by:

  • Kim Cofino, NIST Consultant in Residence
  • Ben Sheridan, NIST Digital Learning Coach
