Preparing kids for jobs we can’t imagine yet

Just came across this article by Liz Dwyer on GOOD and it is a very interesting read. Most people nowadays do jobs and careers, which our parents and teachers could not have imagined at the time. This is a continuing trend so knowing this it makes sense to work on how we can actually prepare children for success.

Imagination, creativity, collaboration to solve problems and conceptual thinking are key skills to build to prepare kids, according to Rita J. King and Joshua Fouts. Their project, at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, called Imagination: Creating the Future of Education and Work wants to help educators figure out how to do this.

Imagine that!

  1. Having read this I believed it was really informative. I appreciate you taking the time and energy to put this
    article together. I once again find myself personally spending a
    lot of time both reading and leaving comments. But so what, it was still worthwhile!
