What Skills Do Google, Pinterest, and Twitter Employees Think Kids Need To Succeed? | EdSurge News

What Skills Do Google, Pinterest, and Twitter Employees Think Kids Need To Succeed? | EdSurge News | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it
Here's the start to an interesting story: a Google program manager, a Twitter engineer, and a Pinterest employee walk into a bar. What are they there to discuss? The skills that K-12 and higher education students should know.

But in reality, it’s not a bar. It’s the EdSurge podcast.

In today’s day and age, Google, Twitter and Pinterest are three of the largest employers in the United States and internationally. Are students gaining the skills that one might need to eventually apply to one of those tech giants, if they chose to do so? In the year 2017, what hard and soft skills should students be developing in order to succeed in the 21st century workplace? What about in the year 2020? 2050?

Let’s stick with the “now,” for a moment. In a recent interview, EdSurge explored which skill sets lead to career success for students—but we didn’t talk to anyone in K-12 or higher education. In fact, we interviewed three individuals—Alexandrea Alphonso, Ryan Greenberg, and Trisha Quan—from each of those aforementioned tech companies.

While the thoughts and feelings of each of the folks we interviewed do not represent the opinions of their employers, each of these technology leaders offered their thoughts in this exclusive Q&A on equity and access, areas that formal education didn’t prepare them for, and their advice for teachers working to prepare students for an ever-changing workplace.

Over time, the traditional classroom-based…

​7 Short-Term AI Ethics Questions – Towards Data Science

​7 Short-Term AI Ethics Questions – Towards Data Science | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

"When new technologies become widespread, they often raise ethical questions. For example:

 

Weapons — who should be allowed own them? Printing press — what should be allowed to be published? Drones — where should they be allowed to go?

 

The answers to these questions normally come after the technologies have become common enough for issues to actually arise. As our technology becomes more powerful, the potential harms from new technologies will become larger. I believe we must shift from being reactive to being proactivewith respect to new technological dangers.

 

We need to start identifying the ethical issues and possible repercussions of our technologies before they arrive. Given that technology grows exponentially fast, we will have less and less time to consider the ethical implications."
