Numerous studies, including ones from the US Department of Education, World Economic Forum, and Bloomberg indicate that tomorrow’s jobs will demand “creative problem-solving skills.”
But what exactly are creative problem-solving skills? And are they being taught effectively to the next generation who will face competition for jobs from automation? How do educators bridge the skills gap to ensure our students are ready for careers that don’t even exist yet?
Globally, educators believe that students need to develop skills to protect their futures, as the professions that require creative problem solving are less likely to be impacted by automation. However, it isn’t just job-protection where creative problem solving makes a difference. Almost 90 percent of respondents surveyed believe students who excel at creative problem solving will have higher-earning job opportunities in the future, and 85 percent agreed that these same skills are in high demand by today’s employers for senior-level and higher-paying careers.
In partnership, Learning Curve and Adobe are committed to supporting educators who are wanting to teach creative problem solving, getting technology into the hands of schools and students, and inspiring young people to create. While technology alone is not the answer, it plays a key role.
