The Future of Education: Are YOU Ready?
A Conversation with Dr. Ryan Schaaf
According to our podcast guest, the future will belong to students who can learn, unlearn, and relearn, …and adapt quickly. Ryan Schaaf is the co-author of the new book, A Brief History of the Future of Education: Learning in the Age of Disruption. The truth is, the job landscape is changing so rapidly that students need long-term skills in order to adapt to this incredibly fast-moving, disruptive time. Jobs that were formerly the mainstays of the economy, such as bookkeeping, customer service, and even law, are now done largely digitally. A new expectation for the future: frequent career changes for workers to move with the times. Some of the insights Ryan gained researching the book: balancing short-term and long-term skills, survival skills for students, and what teaching will look like in the future.
Executive summary for the book – quick read & GREAT! Plus, he just posted “Learning with Digital Games Guide“.
