Students in schools today will be joining the workforce tomorrow. But are they being prepared for success in the 21st century work environment?
It is imperative that schools deliver Technology Education (TechEd) as it will provide students with the opportunity to learn about the processes and knowledge related to technology that are required to solve problems and prepare them for the tech-driven future.
Technologies like AI and Cyber Security are critical for driving growth and creating opportunities; lack of workforce skills will put an industry/economy at a disadvantage in the future.
Students should understand how technology is being used to transform just about every industry and job, and how it’s likely to be used going forward. In the future workplace, they will increasingly work alongside smart machines and AI-enabled tools that will help them work more efficiently and effectively.
