Artificial Intelligence, Schooling, & Tomorrow's Jobs
Are students academically prepared for a future of jobs we have yet to imagine, shaped by technology we have yet to invent? The next decade will usher in a technology revolution—with artificial intelligence leading the way—and most schools are ignoring or unaware of how these changes will affect their classrooms, say experts close to the subject. In this special collection of Commentary essays, professors, advocates, and futurists challenge us all to deeply consider how schooling must change—and change soon—to meet the needs of a future we cannot yet envision.
Flipping the curriculum and updating the goals of education could prepare us for the artificial-intelligence era, writes Charles Fadel.
AI could materially improve education—if educators and policymakers start answering some tough questions today, urges Michael Bennett.
Could engaging traditionally underrepresented students in AI development save us from a dystopia? Tess Posner makes the case.
