According to historian and best-selling author Yuval Noah Harari: “Since we do not know how the job market would look in 2030 or 2040, already today we have no idea what to teach our kids. Most of what they currently learn at school will probably be irrelevant by the time they are forty.”

While the problem statement is simple, the answers may be far more complex.

The current education system is continually faced with shrinking budgets, increased regulations and scrutiny and, perhaps most significantly, accelerating technology.

What will be or should be the role of technology within education? Are students learning the necessary skills to participate, contribute, and engage with an ever-accelerating digital world?

Three amazing guests joined this episode of Building Bridges to answer those questions, and more:

Bridget Rodriguez is the Managing Director of the Education Redesign Lab at Harvard Graduate School of Education.

Bob Fogel was recently the SVP of Instructional Strategy & MD Learning Science Platforms at McGraw-Hill Education, and is currently the President of Performance Consulting, Inc.

Brian Greenberg is the CEO of the Silicon Schools Fund, a $70M venture philanthropy fund in the Bay Area of California.
