The Future of Work

My current unit in High School Digital Literacy is focused on technology at work. The lessons allowed students to assess how technology is present in almost all of the industries existing today and how it will affect their careers in the future.

A viral video on YouTube called “Humans Need Not Apply” (below) was a focal point of discussion. The video showed how automation has evolved from old and pre-loaded instructions machines usually seen in factories to new and improved mechanical minds able to learn tasks independently. This evolution is starting to affect how jobs will be perceived in the future

The reflections written by students showed a myriad of emotions: from fear, anger to relief, or some just couldn’t care less. It was important to process for the class that the lesson’s purpose was to raise awareness on how the future will be like, that the choices they have to make should consider the reality of technology alongside it.

Here are some insightful student reflections:

Digital Workplaces Infographics

As part of the unit on Technology in Society, students were asked to create infographics describing digital workplaces. Others created case studies of digital workplaces, also using infographics. Creating infographic is one way of presenting information, using an even balance of text and images.

Here are some samples of student works:
