How STEM courses prepare kids for future job market
“What do you want to be when you grow up?” We have all being asked and answered this question for many times. Do you remember your answer? I was usually saying that “i want to be a teacher”. But actually we didn’t have so many options.
Traditional education led to growing up our kids for standard and long lasting jobs. Jobs which were lasting for decades.
But today we don’t have this chance. Jobs are changing rapidly and that’s because we can’t plan for a lifetime job.
This is the problem that new education system solves with “stem for kids”.
What are future jobs like?
Unfortunately, we are not able to imagine what jobs will be there in 10-20 years. It’s bad news. on other hand, what we can be sure , is that future job market is more influenced and shaped by technological innovations than ever.
We are moving into a job market that is not only different but also unpredictable, Fallowing by developments in artificial intelligence, robotics and internet of things.
There is good news too! As much as we can’t predict the jobs are coming in future, we can learn the skills are needed to handle these unknown jobs.
Why should i prepare my kids for future jobs differently?
that’s Because future jobs are different. They need different skillsets, different mindsets and of course different education systems to manage teaching and learning. your kids can’t afford competing in this changing and unpredictable environment without a plan.
As shown by researches, more than 70% of kids educated under the traditional system won’t have needed skills and capabilities necessary to take technological jobs when they finish school. It would be more warning if you knew most of the future jobs are from this kind; 5 times More than any other kind of jobs.
How can i prepare my kids for future jobs?
Regardless of jobs type and title, your kid’s skillset is the key factor. The aim is to equip your kids with set of necessary skills and adaptability to help them manage their career pathway.
