Human Intelligence Summits

Creating a culture of problem solvers in the wake of COVID-19

   Summit Overview   

Knowledge is no longer power. Before the internet, it was. Attaining knowledge was a valuable use of one’s education because knowledge was a limited resource only available to those who attained a quality education.

But in the information age, technology has made knowledge is a commodity. AI will forever be faster at finding and even filtering information than we can be. Since it’s impossible to compete with artificial intelligence, education should focus on developing the skill sets that are unique to humans (human intelligence). We shouldn't spend our primary education years, the most creative years of life with the fewest liabilities holding us back, trying to memorize information that we can find online in a manner of seconds. What if instead education focused on taking known information and having students leverage it to solve the biggest problems facing their schools, communities, and world? 

 

Host one of our summits in 2020 to facilitate an immersive professional training for district administrators and join us in a discussion on how we can develop Human Intelligence with our students.
