I recently had the pleasure of collaborating with the brilliant Maria Franzoni, and together, we decided to create a series of concise Zoom interviews discussing key future trends.

In our eleventh friendly chat, we dive into Gen A, the cohort born between 2010-2024, and explore how education needs to adapt for the AI era.

The task at hand revolves around the emphasis in our school curriculums on molding ’employable’ individuals. This worked during the industrial revolution. However, as we enter the AI era, the need today is to foster ‘adaptable’ individuals, requiring a shift towards more interdisciplinary modes of learning.

Educational leaders are well aware of these inherent gaps in the current system; however, they often find themselves constrained by outdated teaching methodologies and expectations. It is essential to create educational frameworks that are not just in sync with the changing times but also cater to the development of essential skills such as self-confidence, leadership, and teamwork. This is how we’ll shape adaptable learners, ready to navigate the ever-evolving landscape of the future.

Stay tuned for more insights into Gen A in my book, Future Hackers, out now.

These bite-sized conversations, lasting no more than two minutes, will be released every Tuesday and Thursday. I hope you enjoy them!

Take care,
