of kids entering primary school today will hold jobs that currently don’t exist

The world as we know it is changing rapidly. We are at the beginning of a Fourth Industrial Revolution. Developments in genetics, artificial intelligence, robotics, nanotechnology, 3D printing, biotechnology, and others accelerate change like never before.

Traditionally education meant learning certain facts and skills.

Today, curriculums have shifted to focus on a more global and digital world. Yet the challenges that our kids will face will be much different from those we faced growing up and many of the things a typical primary school kid learns today will no longer be relevant by the time he or she graduates from uni.

of future of work predicted to be project based instead of roles based

In 10 or 20 years, much of what we “know” about the world will no longer be true. The computers of the future will not be digital. Software code itself is disappearing, or at least becoming far less relevant. Many of what are considered good jobs today will be either completely automated or greatly devalued.

We need to rethink how we prepare our kids for the world to come. Computers themselves will be very different as well, based less on the digital code of ones and zeros and more on quantum laws and the human brain. 

The jobs of the future will not depend as much on knowing facts or crunching numbers, but will involve humans collaborating with other humans to design work for machines.

increase of labor productivity through the impact of AI

While machines are taking over many high-level tasks, such as analytical task and deep data research, there are some things they are unlikely to do in the near future. It is highly unlikely, if not impossible, that a computer will be able to relate to a human as other humans can.

That absence of empathy makes it hard for machines to design products and processes that will maximise enjoyment and utility for humans.

So design skills are likely to be in high demand for decades to come as basic production and analytical processes are increasingly automated.

of workers will freelance by 2027 as we move to a gig economy

We are witnessing a dramatic increase in the number of freelancers, and workers are continuously seeking to escape the rigid demands of the 9-5 corporate environment. The digital disruption and booming start-up culture have propelled the evolution of the gig economy off late.

Regarded as “the future of work” or Workforce 2.0, Gig Economy is driven by the plethora of freelance opportunities with flexible work hours without any time barriers. 

As members of Gen Z begin participating in the workforce, existing attitudes about work are changing. The option to freelance is becoming more appealing because it allows members of these generations to prioritise the things that are important to them and when Generation Alpha enters the work economy they will expect nothing less.
