Globalization and technology are rapidly changing the human society and redefining the value of human talents, knowledge, and skills. The knowledge and skills valued by schools today may not help our children live a successful life in the future. In this address, Professor Yong Zhao discusses how technology and globalization change the value of knowledge and skills and what schools can do to cultivate successful citizens in the future. This presentation is based on the new book Counting What Counts: Reframing Education Evaluation (Solution Tree, 2015), co-authored by Professor Zhao.
