Technology and the skills needed to survive in the workforce continue to evolve at an ever increasing pace. Students today require skillsets that are dramatically different from what was needed to secure jobs 10 or 20 years ago. In this session we will focus on the following:

Why a capacity to learn is more important than knowing How modern social learning leads to shared positive interdependence where knowledge is co-constructed around objects of inquiry. How modern inquiry-based learning follows a non-linear path when solving complex problems.**
