Preparing Kids for a Fast-Changing & Uncertain World

Updated: Mar 22

A few days ago, I connected with Michael Horn to talk about Making It and what the many accelerated and disruptive changes around us mean for kids and their possible futures. You can listen and watch by clicking here (~30 min.).

Michael and I have known each other for a while, but this my first time sitting down with him for this type of conversation, and I really enjoyed it. In 2019, he released Choosing College, a great companion read with Making It.

I hope you enjoy our conversation! It's rare and fun to talk to someone who also lives in the intersections of K-12, higher education, and the world of work.
