Jamie Candee (Edmentum), Luke Jankovic (Emsi Burning Glass), Courtney Reilly(GSV Summit / Skillsline), Sarah Young (Utah State Board of Education), and Stephanie Short (America Succeeds) discuss Revaluing the Currency of "Power" Skills in K-12 at the 2021 ASU+GSV Summit.What were formerly known as "soft skills" are back, and they're anything but soft.
