Erica Orange, Futurist and Trends Analyst: Presentation with Jared Weiner


Erica Orange and Jared Weir analyze and discuss the future of youth, a new global economic model, and what these developments means for education circa the year 2030. Erica opens the dialogue by demystifying the "tried and true" processes and tactics she and her fellow futurists use to forecast emerging trends before they become mainstream.

Essentially they read..."a lot." However, there are several factors they are searching for as they spend thousands of hours scanning data. "We're not looking for the next ipod or the next amazon kindle," she explains. "We're looking further out. We're looking really where that next economy is."
