Preparing Children for the Future

Twenty years ago students could become successful by just studying and passing tests. When they graduated they could either go to college or enter the work force. Those days are gone. The world is changing to quickly for students to just memorize a body of knowledge and enter the work force. Many of the jobs we are preparing students for will not exist in the next few years and the jobs that will be available do not exist today. If the jobs that will be available in the next five years do not exist today, then what are we supposed to teach our students? There are only a few ways to prepare and adapt to a future of uncertainty and no matter which you choose, students must learn how to think creatively and problem solve. They must also be able to not only memorize information from a teacher but to learn how to research and understand any topic or field of study on their own. This program includes information on creativity, problem solving and discovering how to learn and research new fields of study on your own.
