Meet Jack Ma, Executive Chairman of Alibaba Group Holding, and Member of the Board of Trustees, World Economic Forum. Jack Ma is a Young Global Leader Alumni as well as a Foundation Board member of the Global Shapers Community.
Jack Ma says only by changing education can our children compete with machines. Robots could replace 800 million jobs by 2030. Education is a big challenge now. If we do not change the way we teach, 30 years from now we will be in trouble.
Because the way we teach - the things we teach our kids are the things from the past 200 years - it is knowledge based. And we cannot teach our kids to compete with machines - they are smarter. Teachers must stop teaching knowledge.
We have to teach something unique, so that a machine can never catch up with us. These are the soft SKILLS we need to be teaching our children: values, believing, independent thinking, teamwork, care for others. These are the SOFT parts. Knowledge will not teach you that.
That is why I think we should teach our kids sports, MUSIC, PAINTING, ART - to make sure humans are different. Everything we teach should be different from machines. If the machine can do better, you need to think about it.
Full session of Sage, Smart, Philosopher, Guru, Authority, Expert, Iconic, Ironic Jack Ma Yun (马云) (co-founder and executive chairman of the Alibaba Group) at @WEF:


In #education everything we do is based around preparing our students for the #future. Curricula are revolutionised, skills are reprioritised just to change their mind about what's important.

The interview with physicist @carlorovelli on his new book 'CI SONO LUOGHI AL MONDO DOVE PIÙ CHE LE REGOLE È IMPORTANTE LA GENTILEZZA' allows for a more effective approach to Team Teaching on:

✔ Wars
✔ Climate change / Global warming
✔ Nuclear weapons

The most subtle level of material phenomena is governed by interdependence. We are all on the same planet to share a general responsibility for all humanity. Let's wake up our intelligence and handover to the children a beautiful, living, vibrant Earth.
