We know that new jobs are emerging. Who would think that one can obtain a degree in Social Media when it did not exist 10 years ago?
Of course, this places a lot of stress on parents who really want their child to have a amazing career in the future. And with this in mind, we end up asking a question:
“Which career pathway should my child follow?”
Unfortunately, this question has been asked for generation, which has lead many children to follow a pathway that parents feel they should follow – like it or NOT! As a result, children drop out of university or change track because that career was not what they really liked.
With technology changing rapidly, the best question to ask is:
“Which career pathway would best suit my child?”
The beauty about a technology rich environment is that there is so much to experience and so many more opportunities. Careers that your child will be part of, have not even been created yet. Imagine being an Lunar Geologist?
We are in one of the most diverse era’s humanity has ever experience. Kids have the opportunity to experience so much more than any previous generation. From controlling a robot in a Mars simulation to creating a new cookie recipe. And, every opportunity is at our fingers tips – thanks to technology.
However, how do we prepare our kids for a technology rich future when things are constantly changing?
The best way is to get down to basics! Start with understanding your child, how they learn and where their interest lie. Allow them to explore different things. Not everyone is going to be a coder! However, being an enabler of technology is advantageous!
