Preparing for Disruption by Creating Future Possible Selves
Bridglall, Beatrice L.
Liberal Education, v104 n1 Win 2018
It is perhaps more evident now than at any other time in human history that current technologies are racing ahead while skills and organizations are lagging behind. In the context of such uncertainty, Maxine Greene's and Theodore Sizer's ideas about empowering students to develop resiliency, perspective, judgment, and flexibility, as well responsibility to nurture their creativity and imagination, have never mattered more. These characteristics and capacities are critical as students face new challenges associated with a quickly evolving workforce, including the challenge of working creatively with, rather than being limited by, new technologies. This article presents economists' projections of change for the future, along with skills students need and education for the new economy.
