One of the many challenges Educators have today is keeping their students engaged.  Even though this has been researched and discussed from many different angles, two of the "elephants in the room" are distractions, and information overload.

Data Science tells us that nanotechnology knowledge is doubling every two years and clinical knowledge every 18 months. But on average human knowledge is doubling every 13 months. According to IBM, the build out of the "internet of things" will lead to the doubling of knowledge every 12 hours. "Apr 19, 2013, Industrytap.com"

How do we keep our students current with technology and keep them engaged? What skills will they need to thrive  -- in just a few short years?
Better yet, how do we go from engaged to compelled to thrilled? What makes anything thrilling? Focus and efficiency. In other words, take what we hear and what we think we know about LEAN Thinking, especially Continuous Improvement Processes, and apply that to teaching --and learning, and now both the teacher and their students are thrilled.

Everyday there are businesses that are being disrupted by new technology. The top jobs of the future will be shaped by technology; eradicating some jobs while creating others.  The top emerging jobs all use technology and devices, in conjunction with human interaction. Technology, like drones, robotics, automation, and IoT, (Internet of Things) will become an integral part of the way many jobs are delivered and enhanced.  Honestly?  They already are.

Our Presentation discusses how to engage students, be nimble, be compelling, and be relevant.
