Those entering the workforce today will have 6 distinct careers and 13 jobs. 60% of the work and tasks they will be doing in their 50 years career have not yet been invented. 30% of them will be working remotely using technology that has not yet been invented.
If tomorrow’s world offers a constant feast of change, new professions, tasks, work-styles and places then it doesn’t make sense to keep teaching our children only about old professions, work styles and methods.
