Mike Walsh Preparing the next generation for the algorithmic age
December 17, 2018
Futurist Mike Walsh believes the really important aspect of contemplating likely futures, is not so much when technology changes, but when people change. He says it is critical that we think about the role of education in building the society of the future, and the generation we should be paying attention to are the very young, who intuitively understand the use of technology and who will grow up with a very different perspective on the future. Mike emphasises the value of combining problem solving with solutions, as the workforce of the future will require the dual ability to understand the essence of a problem, as well as the tools, techniques and platforms available to them.
