Preparing children for the workforce of the future

This Ted presentation, titled 'Are droids taking our jobs' is worth a look.  The blurb for the 14 minute video is:

'Robots and algorithms are getting good at jobs like building cars, writing articles, translating -- jobs that once required a human. So what will we humans do for work? Andrew McAfee walks through recent labor data to say: We ain't seen nothing yet. But then he steps back to look at big history, and comes up with a surprising and even thrilling view of what comes next'.

One point that the presentation makes very clear; we need to encourage our students of today to be creative and innovative.
