What is Future Readiness?
You must already know that Self-driven cars, Genetic editing, Ubiquitous mobile supercomputing, Neuro-technological brain enhancements. Intelligent Robots is the evidence of dramatic change that is happening around us at an exponential speed. Are we ready to face the challenges like falling out ? Are we equipping our next generation with the skills that would be needed to solve these challenges?
As per World Economic Forum, we, the mankind, stand on the brink of a technological revolution that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work, and relate to one another. The transformation, in its scale, scope, and complexity, will be unlike anything humankind has experienced ever before and Is being called the 4th Industrial Revolution.
On the other hand, is the persistent challenges of Economy, Equality and Ecology. Fundamental Resources of survival like Clean Air and Water are already falling short. Food replenishment is another huge challenge, and even bigger is the decimation of Fossil Fuel that will hit us hard very soon on our Energy needs.
So, we need to develop a mechanism that will help masses to get ready for this VUCA future. At EdMonks, a unit of Harikamal Education Foundation, we are developing a supplemental education system that include Workshop, Online Communities & Bootcamps and many more other programs.
What is the Workshop?
THE FUTURE READY STUDENT WORKSHOP – Awareness, Challenges & Way outs for the VUCA future’ is the name of our workshop that we offer to the schools, organisations, corporate and governments, under our flagship project The Future Ready Student.
As the name suggest, the workshop has been classified into three parts, and since we understand that the best language to talk to the masses is the language of stories. our workshops are delivered only through the stories.
1. The Awareness | unveils the truth of today. In this first part, we share stories around the 4th Industrial Revolution, Technology Mega Trends and The gig economy. So be it Artificial Intelligence or Virtual Reality, we expose the kids to each of these world-changing technologies through stories. Depending on the audience, we include content around Augmented Reality, Blockchain, Big Data, Mobile Computing, Robots & Drones, Internet of Things and many more such technologies in a very layman language. We also talk about the future of the workplace and the Gig Economy.
2. The Challenges | from the future is about Sustainability. We are still focusing and teaching merely about the Economic challenges that too the current one’s, but what about the real challenges of the future, be it economic, ecological or around equality. We also talk about Sustainable Development and its importance. ‘How exactly the world may look like in the future’.
What kind of jobs would be there tomorrow, what about safety of masses, when crime will go north, where from we will get food, what will be the transport solutions, what will be the energy resource, are all burning questions that need to be answerd.
3. The Wayouts | finally talks about solutions and wayouts to handle these challenges.
