Marc Prensky

Global Keynote Speaker & Author

I am an advocate for better ways of preparing all the 2 billion young people under the age of 25 in the world, that better fit both the young people of today and tomorrow and the world they will live in. I apply my key skill of re-framing—honed through six years at the Boston Consulting Group—to all things related to young people. My term "digital natives" re-framed an entire generation. I now see the word's young people as an immensely powerful group, with huge new capabilities like AI, and with positive ideas for improving the world. My interest is in best preparing all 2 billion young people for their future lives—which includes raising their own awareness of their new power. I support the creation of EMPOWERMENT HUBS worldwide for ages 5-25 for real-world accomplishment with impact by young people.
