Millennial Mojo: Disrupting Education Under Millennial Leadership

The best keynote we have ever had - AASA, The Superintendents Association

The future of education looks bright as long as we understand the inclinations and goals of tomorrow's leaders.  However, it needs to be a collaborative effort among generations in order to create a transition that embraces the wisdom of generations past and present, and harnesses the idealism of generations present and future.

Ravi's vantage point is uniquely relevant as a member of "Generation X"—the bridge between Millennials and Baby-Boomers.

Ravi takes his audiences on an inspiring personal journey of personalized learning, entrepreneurial thinking, and social consciousness that yields unparalleled insights into generations and cultures, and motivates educators to take actions that will make education truly relevant in an age of globalization, A.I., and elongated lifespans (the first person to live to 150 has already been born).

In this eye-opening and thought-provoking presentation, discover how much the generations actually have in common and how to use these commonalities as building blocks to collaborate. Ravi depicts an optimistic future based on millennial character traits and explains how to harness their hunger for the arts (the key to teaching empathy), thirst for entrepreneurship (the key to fostering identity), and natural ability to rise above social injustices.

He also challenges participants to consider how artificial intelligence will drive revenue and unemployment, the impact that will have on the disaffection of youth and vulnerability to radicalism, and how society must adapt in order to appropriately navigate this changing landscape.

Ultimately, Ravi empowers Boomers, Xers, and Millennials to successfully collaborate in order to overcome local to global challenges, make education relevant for the future, and bring us closer to world peace.

 

Takeaways will be tailored to each audience, and include:

• Understanding why millennials are organically inclined to educate us out of social injustices
• Why career pathways may work against equality and prosperity, and may instead lead to increased polarization
• Why STEAM is more critical in the age of globalization and A.I. that at any other time
• Millennials' thirst for entrepreneurship, why they are unprepared for it, and how they will incorporate it into curriculum
• Why they are the generation of "broken promises" and how this influences the way they will educate the next generation
• How they will approach new methods to measure student development
