There is a lot of discussion around what the future of education will be and how we future proof our students for the new tomorrow. But what does it mean to future proof our students and what will the future look like? A lot of people seem to be assuming that robots and automation will take many of the current jobs and that most students if they continue on the current course will end up jobless. I don’t buy this view and in fact the data and facts don’t support this view either. Hear what the data tells us is most likely to happen and what students will actually need to be productive members of society in the future. And then go and buy a coffee at your favourite café and relax (you will need to listen to the podcast to understand this last suggestion).
