We don’t know what the jobs of the future will be but we do know that we will be able to do them anywhere at anytime. It is not difficult to predict that 2024 will be vastly different, but it is difficult to predict exactly how things will be different. We can see that no one will do arithmetic on paper, almost no one will write by hand, hence cursive writing will be obsolete and we know spelling and grammar will be dealt with by machines. Machines may also read to us. Reading, writing and arithmetic, the three pillars of primary education will therefore become redundant. Knowing will be obsolete because information will be forever at our fingertips. We therefore need to teach our children to think discerningly. This is not easily achievable using the education system we have today. The challenge is to establish a process that fits this r purpose. What should people know? How should they know these things? How should their learning be assessed?
