This week we are looking at work and jobs disruption and potential opportunities, what students need to know and how they can learn for the future.
It’s not possible to accurately predict the future, of course. However it is possible to get a sense of how things are likely to change over the coming 10 to 15 years. Today’s 5 year olds will enter the workforce from about 2032 to 2037, and as you’ll see below the working environment that they join will be dramatically different from the one we experience today. So what’s going on, and what’s likely to happen?
Welcome to this week’s post. Inside, we explore how skills shortages are inspiring new forms of collaboration between community colleges and employers, and why traditional academic pathways and credentialing may no longer be relevant. We also share what one global leader thinks learning should look like, and why the educational technology industry faces challenges in the marketplace and what this means for teachers.
