Age of Agility

Extreme innovations in technology are forcing radical shifts in the workforce and drastic changes are needed in how we educate students. Technologists, futurists, and business leaders alike are referring to this fundamental shift as the next Industrial Revolution. We call it the Age of Agility. In fall 2017, America Succeeds released The Age of Agility: Education Pathways for the Future of Work to call attention to the misalignment between what is being taught in schools—both K-12 and higher education—and the knowledge, skills, and behaviors required by the modern workplace.

Since then, we have been working for changes in education that match the forces of change in the workforce and economy. We’ve launched a nationwide tour to engage businesses in the conversation and encourage the local action. We’ve launched an accessible resource bank to provide information about potential solutions. In this space, we’re dedicated to bringing more attention to how the Age of Agility has impacted the world and education, and how we can respond.
