Live Interview Thursday, December 15th - Blue Valley Schools Great Industry-Education Partnership

Join me Thursday, December 15th, for a live and interactive FutureofEducation.com panel discussion with students, teachers, and business leaders involved in the Blue Valley Schools - CAPS Program.  CAPS, the Blue Valley's Center for Advanced Professional Studies in Kansas, brings juniors and seniors from all Blue Valley high schools for a "unique learning opportunity to deeply explore their interests in a  profession-based learning approach." Designed to inspire students to succeed in Bioscience, Business, Engineering, and Human Services, CAP brings together industry and education for student-driven learning through authentic problem-based work projects. "CAPS is all about students solving real problems, with real tools (used by real professionals), being mentored by real employers, leading to real contribution."
