Iteration and Innovation in Education

Jaime Casap, Google Education

Jaime Casap, Google Education, USA

Abstract – As the world gets more connected, it also gets more complex.  We now operate on a global scale and our job in education is to help learners develop the knowledge, skills, and abilities they will need to thrive in this new environment.  We are preparing them to solve global problems we haven’t defined yet, using technology that hasn’t been invented, in roles that do not exist.  To thrive in this new era, learners need to know how to learn, problem solve, iterate, create, collaborate, communicate, and to think critically.  What we need more than anything in education is a culture of innovation and iteration in order to build new learning models supported and enabled by technology to foster student focused learning.

Biography – Jaime Casap is the Education Evangelist at Google. Jaime evangelizes the power and potential of technology and the web as enabling and supporting tools in pursuit of promoting inquiry-driven project-based learning models. Jaime collaborates with school systems, educational organizations, and leaders focused on building innovation and iteration into our education policies and practices. He speaks on education, technology, innovation, and generation z, at events around the world.
