Education innovation is critical to ensure a future where every student has the opportunity to meet his or her full potential. Hobsons’ goal is to provide innovative solutions that support equal access to high-quality educational opportunities so that students are empowered to improve themselves, their communities, and our world.
That’s why we’re a proud sponsor and participant at the 2016 ASU GSV Summit. The ASU GSV Summit brings together thousands of entrepreneurs, business leaders, educators, policymakers, philanthropists, and university and district leaders to accelerate innovation and shape the future of learning.
With keynotes, discussions, and presentations with world-class authors, politicians, and entrepreneurs, we’re thrilled to participate in this week’s conversations with some of today’s most pioneering thought leaders in the education industry.
If you’re attending ASU GSV, join the conversation by adding the following sessions to your itinerary:
How Early Is Too Early?
When it comes to planning for college and career, some say “let kids be kids” while others advise starting “at birth.” Children as young as kindergarten are beginning to discover who they are, what they are good at, and how they learn best. In this session, a panel of school leaders will discuss strategies of early college awareness in their districts. Participants are invited to ask questions and share their own thoughts on “how early is too early.” Tuesday, April 19; 10 a.m.; Grand Hall D
First Generation College Success
College access is a hot topic, but how are institutions and organizations actually driving access AND success for students – especially low-income students, first-generation students, and underrepresented minorities? Join Hobsons’ President of Advising and Admissions Stephen Smith, as well as an esteemed panel of school, organization, and business leaders, who will offer real-life examples of student success and engage in a discussion on how we can work together to help students succeed. Tuesday, April 19; 4 p.m.; Coronado E
