How would the future of jobs impact the education of today? This was a question that myForesight-MIGHT were recently invited to answer and provide as a scene-setting to the 1st Asian Strategy and Leadership Institute (ASLI) and Malaysian Scientific Association (MSA) Thought Leadership Series on Education Policy – “From STEM to STREAM – Innovating Malaysian Education”.
Based on myForesight-MIGHT previous work on the topic of Future of Work, Workforce and Workplace, a presentation by Dr Tan Shu Ying; Principal Analyst at myForesight-MIGHT, introduced the job and education revolution that is currently occurring as a result of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Touching on the top trends and emerging challenges shaping the future of jobs, she further emphasised on the volatile future that will require more human critical skills rather than just technical skills and the importance of life-long learning towards reskilling, unlearning and new learning. In line with the theme of the roundtable discussion, it is without a doubt that tomorrow’s jobs will indeed require innovating Malaysia’s Education system today.
“To prepare our future generations for jobs that have yet to exist; the key is to liberate their minds. The empires of the future, are the empires of the mind”
