Special Stammtisch: The Future of Education

Thursday, 8th June 2017 at 6:30pm - 7:30pm

Location: Parkhotel, Zug

This event is in the past.

Background: Within 10 years research shows digital technology is going to make many jobs redundant. Big data with artificial intelligence is already developed to offer driverless cars. From taxi drivers to lawyers, these traditional jobs will either not exist or be radically different from what they are today. The current education systems are not doing enough to prepare our children for their future careers.

Agenda: In this talk the International School of Central Switzerland (ISOCS) will discuss how education systems need to change and what are the critical success factors for making this change happen. It is implementing change with an Entrepreneurship Curriculum that better prepares children in Zug for their future careers. Included will be a discussion on how teaching as a job is already affected by digital technology and what changes ISOCS is making to help teachers change their job role.

As usual at a Special Stammtisch we welcome the partners of our members as well as members of our sister club, the Zug International Women's Club (ZIWC).

The Stammtisch goes from 18:00 to 20:30, so there will be ample time for a drink and a chat both before and after the presentation.

For those who missed the presentation, the slides can be accessed here.
