September 2020 NTSC CISO Policy Roundtable – Virtual Event

September 29, 2020

From Disruption to Reimagining - Creating Positive Change for the Future of Learning

The National Technology Security Coalition’s 2020 CISO Policy Roundtable brings together senior technology security executives in an exclusive setting to talk about trends in national cybersecurity policy. Students graduating across the 2030s will need the skills to navigate uncertainty in civic and work life. To prepare them for a fulfilling future, education is evolving to be competency-based and open-walled, using technology as a mechanism for collaboration, social connectedness, and culture building. The current public health crisis has placed incredible demands upon parents, children, and the education community. Education leaders are working to bring their schools and communities through the disruption of the traditional learning model into a reimagined system that is engaging, accessible, and equitable for all students.

Technology has played a critical role in enabling students to stay connected, engaged, and motivated. Teachers around the world are continuing the learning journey for their classes by integrating video, game-based learning, and powerful collaboration tools into their virtual lessons, and students are experiencing a new type of learning, which will have an important, lasting impact. Institutional leaders have told us that going online was about more than remote instruction – it was about implementing solutions that would keep departments running smoothly and evolve with the changing needs of students and staff.

As we look to the next school year and beyond, system leaders, educators, faculty, students, and families will apply what they’ve learned throughout the process and work together to plan and shape the future of education. Join VP of Microsoft Education Barbara Holzapfel and a panel of education leaders for a discussion of what we know about the skills and requirements students will need for the jobs of the future, and how education is adapting and repivoting in response to the current backdrop of health, economic, and humanitarian challenges.
