If trends continue, most jobs in the future will be taken over by robots. Robots perform repetitious jobs very well.

You took the words on imagination right out of my mouth. Even a box can be wondrous to children. That play house of yours sounds wonderful. Best to you, Pete.
Thank you For the reblog Jennie. I always enjoy reading your blog posts.
You are very welcome, Dayne. Many thanks to you!
I agree. We no longer need to memorise knowledge. That’s available at the click of a button. What we need is creativity and caring!
I especially enjoyed the book titled: What to do with a box…my baby bro and I enjoyed playing with them no end. Maybe we were more cat than kiddo – Ha!
A great book, Laura. Nothing’s better than an empty box to play with!
This is a great post, Jennie, and certainly worth sharing around. 🙂
I thought so, too. She has excellent book choices.
Education is one of the fields that should not be replaced by robotic.
While some program can help Improve children learning ability, the need for a human teacher is of high value.
I would love to hear your opinion about this post. I find it extremely relevant. https://backtoourselves.org/2018/02/18/constructive-education-the-foundations-for-a-better-future-part-1/
