I just saw this photo posted on this blog and it reminded me of this article a friend of mine posted on Facebook last week. This article stated that according to the Economist 47% Of All Jobs Will Be Automated By 2034. Whilst in the space of 20 years it’s impossible for technology to replace teachers, classrooms and schools, I like how this picture paints a parallel between the article and the education context.
We’re all going out on prac in just 3 short weeks… eeeeeekk! It’s going to be a great opportunity to start integrating ICT’s in our lessons and figuring out what works, what doesn’t, what excites the students and how to manage the class. If we go by the advice in this picture these are going to be essential skills in the future :).
