It was my pleasure to serve on the Technology Detroit Panel, “Education 2.0 for Americans 2.0.” The theme was centered around how the nature and the form of traditional curricula may remain a foundational building block, but many students will require a more tech-centric, skills-focused program. Coding could become as important as math. But we can’t lose sight of the bigger picture; liberal arts will remain indispensable, as will job-focused skill set acquisition. Luckily, educational innovation is rampant, so there are a plethora of new tools to better prepare workers for the 21st century.
