Point in Common to focus on millennial leadership

Metro Wire Staff

A local nonprofit group is offering the latest in its speaker series on Aug. 28.

Point in Common: Millennial Mojo will feature Ravi Hutheesing, a Grammy-nominated guitarist from Hanson, who will speak during “Millennial Mojo – Disrupting Education Under Millennial Leadership”.

The talk is scheduled for 7-8:30 p.m. on Aug. 28 at @1800 Theater at the Sentry complex, 1800 North Point Dr. Parents, educators, students, administrators, coaches and business professionals are all encouraged to attend.

“All generations must collaborate to redesign education and make it relevant in an age of artificial intelligence and globalization,” a news release from Point in Common reads in part. “Personalized learning, career pathways, STEAM vs. STEM, and better systems to measure student development are some of the greatest opportunities in education if implemented appropriately.”

Takeaways, according to the group, include: understanding why millennials are organically inclined to educate us out of social injustices; why career pathways may work against equality and prosperity, and may instead lead to increased polarization; why STEAM is more critical in the age of globalization and A.I. that at any other time; millennials’ thirst for entrepreneurship, why they are unprepared for it, and how they will incorporate it into curriculum; why they are the generation of “broken promises” and how this influences the way they will educate the next generation; and how they will approach new methods to measure student development.

There is so admission charge but registration is required here.
