The Robotic Age. Is this science fiction or might it be reality? How much do you know about our human future in the robotic age? Is it really going to be humans v robots? It's time to pay attention. Economics and global automation will not wait for teachers to make their minds up. We must tune in now:
  • This year's kindergarteners will finish school in 2029
  • The UN predicts a world of 8.5bn will consume 50% more food and 40% more energy by 2030
  • Global studies point to massive changes in the workplace with automation of work; 47% of jobs known today will be seriously disrupted or replaced by machines by 2030
To know how to connect our children with a successful future, we must have some idea of what the future looks like. Together we will observe global change, establish our position in history and develop a vision for tomorrow through an interactive and collaborative engagement.
Take a deep look at the research of the future of work. What are the scenarios? What jobs have already been automated, what's coming in the immediate future? What's on the horizon? Are we already seeing the fallout of this story?
Work with your colleagues to plug your classroom into a very different tomorrow.  Develop the individual; develop the human. It's back to base for a re-think.
