Presented by Rob Evans, Ed.D. and Michael Thompson, Ph.D.
As the future of work grows more complex and less predictable, many parents want their children to master more rigorous academics. But research shows that "people smarts" such as communication, collaboration, creativity and flexibility may be even more important than "book smarts" for a successful life and career. How can parents - and schools - make the most of both?How can they help their children to develop these critical 21st century skills within the context of strong academics? Rob Evans, Ed.D and Michael Thompson, Ph.D. will outline the challenges and offer practical advice to parents.
