5 charts that explain the future of education

5 charts that explain the future of education
Children need to learn social and emotional skills if they are to thrive in the workplace of the future, a World Economic Forum report has found. The new research shows that as the digital economy transforms the workplace, Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) skills such as collaboration, communication and problem solving will become ever more important as more traditional roles are mechanized. With more than half of children now entering school expected to work in jobs that don’t yet exist, adaptability is becoming a core skill. Social and Emotional Learning skills are those abilities that lie outside core literacies such as reading, writing and arithmetic. They allow creativity, problem solving and communication and have at their heart social interactions. Of 16 skills identified in the report as important for the 21st century, 12 are SEL. Students require 16 skills for the 21st century Image: WEF How do we know that jobs are going to change? This is a trend which is predicted to continue. Related:  manuel2000

Potter Following nearly a decade of graduate work in linguistics, moral philosophy, and classical/ancient history, I find myself often contemplating the bigger questions in life. For example, “Is the dark side stronger?” The concept of “destiny” or “predestination” is central to the plot of Star Wars. My point is this–recently in our galaxy, we have at times used perceived passions and abilities in a fixed-minded approach as proof points of destiny. This approach might have worked well in the industrial economy of a long time ago. This new perspective of preparing students for work and life rather than a “Career of Destiny” is illuminated by the recent findings of the McKinsey Global Institute’s report, Jobs Lost, Jobs Gained: Workforce Transition in a Time of Automation.
