The skills that matter in the race between education and technology

The skills that matter in the race between education and technology | Critical thinking for the 21st century | Scoop.it
To improve learning outcomes and prepare students for the world of work, countries must develop a system to determine current learning levels and future learning aims. Policymakers need to consider each aspect of the education system in defining an appropriate reform that will provide an inclusive and holistic approach to improving education outcomes

Genderson's curator insight, March 2, 12:02 AM

The article states that there is a race between technology and education, where technology takes advantage by automating processes, hence creating unemployment and less need of actual human resources. In addition, it also proposes a list of skills that people will need in order to become "immune" to the automation process, among those skills we have critical thinking and social skills, which are indeed crucial and hardly acquired by robots. I believe that we can't deny automation is a threat to humans' works, yet, it can also help our development and contribute to have a better way of life by minimizing the amount of hard work some people have to do. Moreover, technology can be used in education as well, to help us achieve those so necessary skills to survive automation and make ourselves indispensable, ironically defeating technology by using technology.

Julián David Cano's curator insight, March 5, 7:27 PM

This article is very interesting, and it has a lot of aspects to consider. Everybody is facing strong changes in life due to technology, and is has a connection with education. Technology is replacing many things of the 21st century even the way of educating people. That is the reason why  more prepared people are required to succed nowadays. Education has the need of educating people with specific skills that are: problem-solving, self-management, collaboration, team work, leadership, besides others (Patrinos, H. 2017).

Technology should be seen as a useful tool to increase the intellect of people, and not the enemy of education.

Daniela Tabares Restrepo's curator insight, March 22, 4:16 PM
This text helps us to reflect about what is happening with technology. We need to take into account the contribution of technology in our lives nowadays. It is clear that it brings a lot of advantages; it saves time, and money, for example. The problem is that too much advance is also a negative point due to the fact that as it was mentioned some machines are replacing jobs of people who really need them. For that reason, it is necessary to develop skills as much as possible. Skills such as critical- thinking, creativity, flexibility, adaptability, leadership, and so on. Those are skills that machines and technology cannot develop. So, it is time to think about innovation, but for people.
