The Digitalization Age
We are living in extraordinary times. Digitalization has impacted our lives for a few decades now, and it will affect all segments of our world at some level of degree. We are at the very beginning of the digitalized age, and the pandemic is only going to expedite its growth. To prepare for this future, students need to understand the role digitalization plays and develop the critical human skills required for this new age. The idea of “lifelong learning” has been around for a generation. Still, we haven’t ever really put in practice to make this idea a reality. We have the tools and technology to bring lifelong learning to life; our students will not survive the future without the ability to learn new skills continually. In my presentation, I explore these ideas and make a case for the ability to learn as the most critical skill students need to master.
