Webinar Overview:
School district and state level education leaders are responsible for implementing curricula which prepare our children and students for their future. But there can be tension between developing a curriculum to create “well-rounded” students and a curriculum that helps create “job or career ready” students.

After researching millions of actual job postings and hiring results, IDC found that the skills that support a well-developed, civically competent student are the same skills that will be widely in demand by employers in 2020 and beyond. 

Join Cushing Anderson, program vice president for IDC’s Project-Based Services research, and Edwin Guarin, Business Productivity Solution Specialist at Microsoft, as they illustrate the skills and competencies that employers are increasingly seeking.
This webinar will:
  • The 20 top skills required across nearly 15 million job postings and how they positively shape curriculum reform
  • How those skills promote high growth and high pay in fields which represent nearly 30% of the job growth between 2010 and 2020
  • Ways in which those essential skills can be taught and reinforced in classroom environments via readily available technology tools
  • Webinar Speakers:
    Cushing Anderson,
    IDC, Program Vice President, Project Based Services – Consulting, HR and Learning
    Cushing Anderson
    Edwin Guarin
    Education Solution Specialist, US Education, Microsoft Corporation
