Our world is changing at an exponentially greater pace than generations before us, which means our education system needs to evolve alongside it. Dana Mortenson, founder and CEO of World Savvy, will discuss how developing students’ global competence can prepare them for future careers and civic engagement in an increasingly diverse, interconnected world. She’ll explore how our current K-12 education system, designed to “standardize learning,” is misaligned with the realities and demands of the 21st century and beyond.  And she’ll share how World Savvy has been working for nearly two decades to re-imagine K-12 education to build more inclusive, adaptive and globally competent learning environments to help all young people thrive.
