Part 2 with Josh Reppun on "What School Could Be in Hawaii"

Last week, I got to catch up with Josh Reppun on his podcast, What School Could Be in Hawaii. Josh has quickly become one of my favorite people to talk to, and as a Native Hawaiian, it always means a lot to connect with educators and innovators from Hawaii.

In this Part 2 conversation of "Quick Kine Bites" (~50 min, listen here), Josh and I cover a lot of ground from my book, Making It, especially on the future of work and learning. We talk about what it means for today's kids to grow up in an Open Source Society where everything is changing so much and so fast. We also explore what technology and acceleration are doing to the job market and what that means for the preparation and training our kids need.

At the end of our conversation, we even debate whether the ACT and SAT should be gone for good.

This is a conversation you won't want to miss! I hope you enjoy it. I know I did—mahalo plenty to Josh and his team.
