KnowledgeWorks Foundation, the primary sponsor of the Future of Education interview series, is pleased to announce its new 2020 Forecast: Creating the Future of Learning and accompanying website experience. We invite you to join us as we discuss the Forecast with KnowledgeWorks Foundation President and CEO Chad Wick and futurist Andrea Saveri. We will explore key forces of change that will shape the landscape of learning over the next decade, and how we are moving toward a culture of creation and innovation.

Chad Wick is driven by a desire to create equity of educational opportunity in order to effectively prepare all students for college, work, and citizenship in the 21st century. Recognized by former U.S. Secretary of Education Richard W. Riley as "one of the outstanding education leaders in the country," Chad leads KnowledgeWorks Foundation in its mission to increase the number and diversity of people who value and access public education. As the founding president and CEO, he has led the Foundation to achieve this mission by providing not only seed grants and operating funds, extensive technical assistance and training, but policy and advocacy projects that promote and support sustainable, system-wide changes.

Prior to starting her own independent practice, Andrea Saveri worked for Institute for the Future, a non-profit think tank in Palo Alto. As a research director, her career at IFTF included leading large-scale domestic and international research studies in technology adoption, social innovation, and networked organizational structures. At IFTF she launched FutureCommons, an open networked thinking community, and initiated IFTF's transition to a networked organizational model, applying her research to IFTF's strategic plan. She pioneered IFTF's work with teens, developing curriculum to teach youth about forecasting and long-term thinking.  Over the years she has presented research and facilitated numerous client meetings from the managerial and operational levels to the executive and board levels.
