Careers of Tomorrow

Amazon Robotics

When we think about the children we teach today and the tomorrow they will step into, it is paramount that we think about the careers of tomorrow and the skills they will need. For example, there are over 130 job openings (June 2019) in the Robotics Division of Amazon alone. How many schools today are preparing children to know and understand the skills needed for this career path?

Thousands of robots are deployed all over the warehouse at all hours of the day to fulfill orders. that ship globally. Designers, programmers, and educators work together to make this happen.

How are you preparing children to compete in a workplace environment like this one? What skills are you teaching them?

Apple Keynote 2019

Apple will never come out and say, "We are not doing anything new this year. We have stopped innovating." That would be absurd. Certainly, they will keep innovating and it will continue to surprise us. Whatever is new to us...should be shared with students. This will lay the foundation for students who are ready for whatever is new tomorrow.

If you aren't in the habit of researching up-to-date market trends, I encourage you to research new things. Read just a few articles each week. Know what trends are hot and what trends are not.

THIS LINK is the June 2019 Keynote for Apple.
