What Machines Cannot Teach
The 4th Industrial Age has arrived.
AI will render millions of jobs obsolete, and many will not have the skills for new jobs. Need to reimagine school education. Two-thirds of today’s primary children will be required to take up jobs that don’t exist today.
Today’s teaching is focused on content knowledge and not on application and innovation. If schools continue teaching the way they have been doing for the past 200 years, children have a bleak future. The machines will take over! They will have no economic value, and will be consigned to the useless class, or worst, biological waste.
New knowledge must focus more on what what machines cannot teach. Machines are good in knowledge; human beings are good in wisdom. Therefore, the ‘soft’ curriculum should aim at achieving wisdom, innovation and an entrepreneurial mindset, comprising:
- Believing in beliefs
- Independent thinking
- Team work or collaboration
- Entrepreneurial mindset
- Growth mindset
- Research mindedness and skills
- How to access credible information
- Art, music and sports
This is what Indus will endeavour.
With warm regards,
