The purpose and objective of the session is to share the insights of hard working and creative teenagers who have pushed the boundaries of what is possible in K-12 education, and show how their insights can drive changes in K-12 schools that can help all students.
The educational challenge is to figure out to maximize the potential of all students by learning lessons from some of the highest-achieving or most technologically skilled students in the country.
Education Week's Faces of the Future series is telling the stories of those kinds of students. For example, Ian Michael Brock, a 9th grader, wants the next billion-dollar tech company to be launched by an inner city kid like him.
The evidence of success is shown by the very impressive accomplishments that the students profiled in Faces of the Future series have already achieved.
Short intro of about 5 minutes about Education Week's Faces of the Future series and its new line of Future of Work coverage.
This will be followed by a conversation with the students about their goals, the projects they are working on, and what they think is right and wrong with K-12 schools.
Session will end with a 10-minute Q&A with the audience.
