Teaching the New Essential Skills

everything has beauty

 

Learn how to see

 

I was reading an article suggesting that in the future, 47% of today’s jobs will be automated. The robots are coming?

Increasingly, adaptive systems, pervasive computing and big data are supplanting many services or functions currently delivered by actual humans. In this reality, education shifts from knowledge transfer to… incubating creativity, fostering entrepreneurship and enabling critical reflection, judgement and decision-making.

“In a roboticized economy, colleges will have to pivot to building students’ capacity for coming up with original ideas”

This isn’t new. Transformative learning experiences have always meant seeing the world in new ways. Time spent in the “classroom” (wherever or whatever that looks like) is so precious and limited. I want to create learning spaces that illuminate possibilities and unleash students’ potential.

Learning to see beauty means creating it. Creating the possible is beautiful.
