11:40am Future of Work in 2050

Assignment here.

We’ve been working on the future of education in 2050, and how it might be free to the learner. We need to ask a fundamental question though. What kind of work will people be doing, and what skills are necessary for such work, and who will pay for the acquisition of those skills so that it is free for the learner. Watch the following clips, and take notes of what each clip tells you about the future of work and what lifelong learning skills people will need in 2050.
