When I grew up technology was not how it is today, now you have all the information you need at just the touch of a button.
As a mother of three young sons, I know that technology has changed the world and that our children need to be up on the latest technology to secure a job in the future. There is no doubt in my mind that our children will be competing with robots when it comes time for them to dive into the workforce.
I often get a lot of flak from the older generation about teaching my children how to operate tablets, phones, and computers. But I know that this is the best thing for them. It’s time to let go of the past and look to the future, our children are the future. It’s time to teach our children how to use technology as it is to their benefit.
CST Learning Project Competition
Our friends over at CST get this. They just launched their annual CST Learning Project competition which funds new learning activities for children with $250,000 up for grabs. (They take the future seriously). It’s part of their cool Inspired Minds program that also includes Careers 2030—a deep dive into the possible careers our kids will have. (Robot Counsellor? Data Miner? Rewilder?)
#CSTLearningProject Twitter Party
Parent Life Network and Canada Scholarship Trust (CST) Foundation will be hosting a Twitter Party and you’re invited! Join us for an hour of fun to discuss the future, robots and all of the possible jobs that will be available to our little ones. We’ll be giving away $1,000 in that hour!
