The unmistakable truth to mastering technology is the reality that
80% of careers require some level to tech knowledge. The ability to
not just read, but comprehend what is being read and following 
directions is important.

Achieving success in today’s digital careers will require youth, teens
and young adults to respect the value of learning and gain knowledge
and experiences to grow into leaders.
That creativity, innovation, dreams, inspiration, motivation and
collaboration does matter with others so youth, teens and young
adults along with learning need to learn to get along and work
collaboratively. 

The access to platforms, tools, Apps, widgets, plugins and other
digital programs is not the only thing needed to be successful, it
takes networking, education, collaboration and hard work.
Global kids access to conferences are growing nationally and
internationally. Blogging, microblogging are needed that
encourage youth, teens and young adults to embrace not just
the tech, but embrace the humanity behind the tech.

The integration of STEAM, STREAM and CSTREAM are components
that are access points to career choices that have not even been
developed yet. In cities across this nation and even globally, there is
the expansion of environmentally friendly and carbon-less infusion
of fossil fuels that are pollutants to our environment.

Educational models are changing in elementary and secondary
education to integrate hands-on and project based learning.
Teachers are facilitators and advisers, they are encouraging guided
discovery, allowing youth, teens and young adults to be increasingly
creative and  allow innovative learning to run classrooms. 

The building of kids conferences  is not what it was a few years ago,
it is growing into an opportunity to get kids exposed to not just the
tech, but the humanity behind it. How tech can allow for their voices
to be heard and a platform for social change. 
Teaching the soft-skills of collaboration, respect for differences in
color, culture, gender and generational experiences. Taking the
learning from the classroom and applying it to real world experiences
in STEAM and Web Development. 

IT fields are growing at such a rate that children, especially children of
color, culture and ethnic backgrounds are changing their directions from
sports and entertainment to new career options that provide increased
educational and financial stability and growth.

Many kids conferences are stating why just depend on sports
and entertainment to change lives when STEAM can produce generational
increase through education, economic and environmental exposures.
Kids conferences are helping youth, teens and young adults to create a
web presence that is their digital resume, building Brands, creating
Niches,  helping create kids as Influencers and role models.

Their voices are being heard on YouTube channels, on Facebook Live
and through Instagram videos. The concerns of younger generations
is being broadcast and podcast.
Youth, teens and young adults from Central America, Africa,  the United
States and Canada are learning from educators,  business owners,
entrepreneurs and even their peers how to design, build, grow and
mange new business models.

It can be seen now that 7 year olds are “digital influencers;”
the term digital influencer, thought leader, digital innovator, smart
creative and others carry respect. The changing of the narrative of
who youth, teens and young adults are and their thinking is changing
because they – youth, teens and young adults are sharing their own
stories on digital platforms that connect like-minded people.

Kids conferences, workshops, meetups, etc,  are allowing youth to
even start to solve problems that are not even problems yet and help
kids in Africa change the economic paradigm and foundation for education.

Central America and Africa are the new bases for entrepreneurs and
solo-preneurs. Kids across the world will have to compete against
African and Central American kids for digital jobs that are remote and high tech.

The growth in online educational institutions coupled with online
careers means more and more kids can gain knowledge and skills
digitally and continue to grow faster than their parents.

The change is here, it is not coming, being done now with
conferences providing such unique experiences that kids have their
own panels for discussions  that are seen in panels  and PodCasts.
Parents would be wise to listen to their kids about their dreams,
aspirations and passions because those maybe the conduits
of coming businesses that will change the world as we know it
for generations to come.
