The RobCast: Thoughts of Future Trends 2
Ok, I start this entry, which is a continuation of "The RobCast: Thoughts on Future Trends" (go figure) stating that this is the second of two entries on this topic. I was wrong. I didn't get anywhere near the end, so this is the second in at least 3 entries discussing an article in The Futurist magazine entitled "Trends Shaping the Future: Technological, Workplace, Management, and Institutional Trends" by Marvin J. Cetron and Owen Davies.
Topics covered this time include:
- Funding education?
- School days lengthened?
- Increased job specialization
- Fast growth in low-skill jobs? (there's an odd skip here as my iPod decided it was bored and stopped recording)
- Retirees as school mentors
