There has been much discussion about Artificial Intelligence(AI) in recent months. I have spent time with some educators collecting articles, so we can determine where artificial intelligence is going to affect us most in schools. We know that artificial intelligence is going to make many rote tasks simpler and will displace some workers. In schools, what skills must we teach to remain relevant? For students who learn differently, what must we do while this area of life moves very fast and beyond capture by most of us?
It seems to me the most important thing that people will have to learn (in the long run) is to be able to find satisfaction, stimulation, and community outside of the thing we call “work”. It is likely that “work” will increasingly be done by computer algorithms. Nearer term, the goal of finding satisfaction, stimulation, and community outside the workplace is not a bad thing either. Who knows, it might lead to a better work and life balance.
