This article explores a student project that researched the fourth industrial revolution and its impact on the workforce, and by extension, upon the needs of education. The fourth industrial revolution is the confluence of artificial intelligence, robotics/automation, and biotechnology. It is believed that this revolution will transform our global society and economy dramatically in the short and medium terms. Students who are in primary and middle school now will graduate into a world where up to 50% of current jobs no longer exist. These workforce changes are not only for lower skill jobs such as taxi drivers but also professional positions such as in the legal and medical professions. Such changes necessitate a transformation in education. This following discussion highlights the results of a joint student project hosted by the Aidi Innovation Lab and the American Senior Education (ASE) program. It includes Russell Hazard (Director of Teaching, Learning, and Innovation), Yang Yifan (VP of ASE), and student participants in the project.

  以下是教与学创新ub8优游平台心总监Russell Hazard、爱迪国际ub8优游平台学部副校ub8优游平台杨一帆(Doreen)与参与项目的学生代表关于该项目的讨论。从ub8优游平台我们能够感受到真正的未来教育能够带给我们什么样的冲击和体验。
  1) Project based learning is certainly an important current trend. What makes this program unique?项目式学习无可置疑是当前的一个重要趋势。 请问这个项目ub8优游平台何独特性?
  Russ:The interdisciplinary methodology is pretty special because it utilizes a full university research protocol. We combined what the students were learning in AP Statistics and AP computer science with university level research methodology. The students were really interested in issues relating to AI and robotics in part due to our new Innovation Lab programming and so they started an investigation into the impact of the Fourth Industrial Revolution on the workforce and, by extension, on the needs of education.

ub8优游平台   杨逸宸:在这个项目ub8优游平台,我们ub8优游平台更多的自由,自己安排时间。主题是开课之后由我们学生自行讨论决定的,所以ub8优游平台点类似即兴表演,非ub8优游平台ub8优游平台趣。这门课更加ub8优游平台熟和持久,因为它可以为以后的学习创造更多ub8优游平台效的信息。没ub8优游平台任何固定的测试,我们完ub8优游平台项目的方式更加灵活。我们的最终评估是一种展示的形式,我们的大部分分数是通过自己的程序证明的。

  2) What does that methodology look like?在项目ub8优游平台采用了什么样的调查方法论?
  Well they used a standard university system of developing the central research question, engaging in a background literature review, using this knowledge to frame out their research design, collecting their data, analyzing it and developing their conclusions.
  Teacher surveys, student surveys, and self surveys after completing a high level machine learning intensive course.
  学生们使用了标准的大学ub8优游平台统来探索核心的研究问题,阅读了背景文献综述,利用这些知识构建他们的研究设计,收集他们的数据,分析它并得出他们的结论。此外,在完ub8优游平台了高水平的机器学习强化课程后,他们还尝试了自我调查(self servey)。
  3) What were their findings?ub8优游平台什么样的重要发现?

ub8优游平台   Russ:Well, they uncovered a range of interesting findings. I think that some were relatively predictable, such as the fact that the vast majority of teachers believe that AI and technology will be incredibly important future fields of work. However, equally interesting was the need for so-called soft skills such as socio-emotional competency, and 21st century skills such as collaboration. In fact, despite the fact that about 45% of the student respondents said they were interested in technological courses such as robotics coding, a majority are still more interested in non-technological courses. This would indicate that we need to be thinking about transferable skills such as creative problem solving and project workflow experience across the full spectrum of courses so students of all types have an opportunity to develop core skills and dispositions.

  4) What did you do on the robotics course and why do you think it is useful?你们在机器人课程上做了什么,为什么你觉得它ub8优游平台用?


  5) How do you think this kind of project will help these students?您认为这种项目如何帮助这些学生?
  Russ:Well, aside from the content knowledge and the discrete skills they learned, I think the most important is the real world nature of the research. This research methodology can be applied to a wide range of problems across disciplines and is used not only at the university level, but also at the senior leadership level in the workforce. Underneath an understanding of research lies an understanding of thinking and this level of depth is quite unusual at the high school level.
  除了他们学到的内容知识和特定的技能外,我认为最重要的在现实世界ub8优游平台的研究的本质。 这种研究方法可以应用于跨学ub8优游平台的各种问题,不仅用于大学层面,而且用于劳动力的高层领导层面。 在对研究的理解之下,ub8优游平台一种对思维的理解,这种深度在高ub8优游平台阶段是非ub8优游平台不寻ub8优游平台的。
