National Superintendents Roundtable

Keynote Address with Christy Johnson

July 15, 2017

 

A tsunami of recent reports suggests that between 9 and 20% of today’s jobs will be replaced by technology and robots. Occupations that will potentially be affected number in the tens of millions and include wait staff, bartenders, truck drivers, bookkeepers, lawyers, radiologists, writers and hedge fund managers. What are the implications for schools? How can we help our students face the future?

Christy Johnson, Artemis Connection founder and former McKinsey analyst, reviews what she is has heard from large manufacturing and software companies in Silicon Valley regarding specific skills employers are seeking. She also provides examples of robots already in place and K-12 programs involving students in robotics and artificial intelligence.
