Title: Perils or Promises: Education in the Age of Smart Machines.
According to a 2016 World Economic Forum report, advances in technology could displace as many as five million jobs by 2021. Furthermore, according to the same report, 65 percent of children entering elementary school today will, as adults, be working in jobs that currently do not yet exist.
How do we prepare our children for this vast revolution? Can we adapt our current educational model to account for this changing employment landscape and skills requirement? Or do we need to entirely rethink how we educate our children?
