Future Squared Episode #190: Learning How to Learn

The world is changing faster than ever and up to 60% of today’s jobs are likely to be automated in the next 10-15 years, yet most of what children learn in school is still geared towards traditional roles, and still forces them to become adept at reading, remembering and regurgitating as opposed to more transferable and relevant skills such as resilience, embracing and thriving in ambiguity, critical thinking and problem solving. 

Given all of uncertainty, ambiguity and complexity and volatility we’re facing as an economy and society going forward, as technology begins to play an ever greater role in our lives, I was asked what I thought the number one skill children need to learn is. For me, it’s not coding. While coding and having literacy in the language of the machines will be important, it may effectively become the blue collar job of the future. Commoditised by millions of people in economies such as India who can do the same job for a cheaper price. 

The value in learning coding aside from using it to build things, is the hacker mindset and the type of thinking that it supports. But in a world where things are constantly changing, the number one skill children need to learn, I said, is learning how to learn. So how do we learn how to learn? That is the focus of today’s episode.
