How do we prepare young people for a world we cannot imagine?


Children beginning school this year are likely still to be working in the final quarter of the 21st century. This means that no matter how much they learn at school, it won't be enough, because most of what they need to know for their lives—both inside and outside the world of work—hasn't been discovered or invented yet. And while there are those that claim to be able to predict what kinds of skills will be needed in the future, the truth is we just don't know. The idea that children should learn how to learn used to be an optional extra; now it is a survival skill. Science, technology and mathematics will be important in the future, but so will subjects like music, drama, dance, and art, partly because they play a role in helping people live fulfilled lives, but also because these subjects emphasize creativity more than other subjects, and creativity is the one thing we know machines can't do. In this presentation, Dylan will outline the role of teachers and school leaders to ensure that young people take control over their lives, appreciate their culture, make a difference in the world, and find rewarding work.
