The way the world conducts business has changed and continues to change so it makes sense that the way we prepare our students for life after school should change. 6 Ways Work Will Change by Jared Lindzon, outlines several potential changes in the business and management world for 2016. For example, businesses are realizing that finding talent for their company is more efficient in the virtual world than it is in the brick-and-mortar world. Also, businesses continue to adopt a more collaborative approach to the workforce structure with leaders requiring skills in inspiration and collaboration rather than simply being loyal or committed.
If the goal of school is to prepare students for life after school, then schools and teachers need to embrace these changes. Teachers need to provide the students with the skills necessary to succeed outside of school. The very nature of how the world operates is constantly evolving and thus the way that we teach needs to as well.
