Food for Thought Friday: How Students Can Protect Their Future Careers

by Kristie Burk, DASD Coordinator of Cyber and Blended Learning

A few weeks ago, I wrote an article called “What does the future hold for our students?” There were some scary statistics, including the one that said  $2 trillion worth of human economic activity will be replaced by robots in the future.  Don’t agree? Read this article from NPR on how robots in California are making pizzas!

If you, too, are worried about our students’ future, you may want to read this article from The Atlantic called “Ask an Economist: How Students Can Future-Proof Their Careers.”  It contains advice from economists all of the world who were asked which skills they’d focus on if they were about to start their first year of college. Some great food for thought!
