The Class of 2030: The technology imperative & the labor market demands

09 Oct 2019
Vertical Stage 2, Za'abeel Hall 6

The volume, velocity and variability of change experienced at this, the start of the Age of AI, challenges us to consider what education systems must prioritize to ensure young people flourish and contribute productively and ethically to their communities and economies. In this session, Mark reflects upon the insights from 7000 students and educators regarding their aspirations, expectations and experiences in schooling and considers what this means against meta analysis of projected labor market demands across the decade of the 2030’s- What skills will be most valued? How can technology today help address the needs?
