Computer Algorithms and the Future of Jobs

A TED talk about advance of smart computer algoritms is worth watching several times by teachers and those whom they teach. it is at: http://www.ted.com/talks/anthony_goldbloom_the_jobs_we_ll_lose_to_machines_and_the_ones_we_won_t?utm_source=newsletter_daily&utm_campaign=daily&utm_medium=email&utm_content=image__2016-08-08

One popular solution is to teach everyone coding during their school years. While coding can help in many ways, I think it should be accompanied by the idea of making, creativity, inventing, and even entrepreneurship during childhood and teen years. Such can be included in the opportunities provided by the professional staff in the school library learning commons. For many bored students, a fresh creative and participatory learning environment is as refreshing to the mind as recess is to the body.

Challenge: Have the learners in your school help you reinvent what goes on in your library learning commons on a regular basis.
