It’s not easy to answer that question, mostly due to the fact that we are unsure of the specifics of what the life conflict of the future will entail. Nonetheless, we are able to sketch out at least a portion of the future based on the shifts that we are currently observing in both technology and human life, as well as the more immediate shifts that we can predict with a high degree of accuracy. Draw it to the best of your ability and as quickly as possible. In order for the next generation to have a fighting chance in this fight called life, it will be feasible to give them access to the most advanced and efficient weapons.
There was a period when our lives could be generally classified into two categories. The initial element of our job required us to do just that: study. We were in the process of figuring out how to survive in this world. Part 2: Use that information to choose a career and get through life. According to the experts, that won’t be the case by 2040. If you think that you’ll automatically apply something forever just because you’ve learned something once, think again. As you enter the next phase of your life with the expertise you’ve gained thus far, you will repeatedly make ineffective decisions due to the rapid pace at which the world is changing.
Your chosen occupation will eventually grow stale. You must continually acquire new knowledge and requalify yourself for new conditions. Formerly, your learning and implementation times were distinct. Now the two will occur simultaneously. In other words, when our youth learns something, they will attempt to apply it. Or they will get knowledge through experience. Learning will continue professionally, just as it did in student life.
The young generation will have to be more skilled and capable than us in maintaining mental balance in the future. We notice a big physical-mental change in us from age 10. The rate of change gradually increases and eventually decreases. At 50, we are fairly stable. Then gradually lead an unchanged life. Once it ends, our young generation will not be allowed to settle like this.
They have to keep trying to adapt to the fast-changing world’s ever-changing conditions. Inevitably, they will suffer from much higher levels of stress. Their increasing life expectancy can be associated with depression.
Living long will also mean staying physically and mentally healthy for a long time, another tough and protracted battle for them.
Another big difference between us and the younger generation is information. We were data-deficient in our childhood. We used to collect those data from school and college and try to understand the life and world around us. And the opposite will happen in the coming days. Students will be exposed to so much fake information that it becomes difficult to understand the reality around them. Yet to find out the truth, that information is needed. But at the same time, ensuring our students do not drown or get lost in its strong current is very important. Due to a lack of data, the truth was sometimes not revealed to us. And now the truth is covered in the glory of data.
The foundation of one’s education was laid in their younger years. There was a sense among us that it would last indefinitely. A static educational system, however, is doomed to fail in today’s dynamic environment. Nowadays, classrooms should be more like tents than buildings. So that moving the location is simple in case it becomes necessary. Cooperation and empathy training will make up a significant portion of today’s curricula. Soft skills, also known as fluid abilities, are more useful in various contexts since they can be reshaped to fit the needs of the situation at hand.
Considering the factors above, our kids should be able to learn throughout their lives; we must instil in them the ability and mindset to do so. Once upon a time, we would declare that after schooling, we would be “established” in life. They should not have such unrealistic expectations. This should be explained to them as well. On the other side, such unpredictability will result in significant stress. Therefore, they must prepare for this event.
It is unclear how much our future generations will have to learn to survive the war of life. But what has become clear is that necessary measures are being taken based on the new curriculum. Now the government, teachers, students, parents, and all concerned can implement it together
