10 ways the world will have changed by 2031 / live on Hong Kong 3, ABC WA, ABC FNQ

Date posted: January 22, 2018

Gen A's (born 2002 - 2025) beginning Prep this week, will finish high school in 2031 and emerge into a world that will be so different to today's that they might as well be living on Mars (and they might be). In this weeks on air segments I chatted about 10 significant ways the world will have changed by 2031, and what we can do now to get them, ourselves and our businesses ready for the very near world ahead:

  1. Gen A won’t use technology, they will BE technology - tech will be so ordinary, ubiquitous and built into every surface and object that we will speak to it, play with it, and engage with it as if it were anot

Our education system isn’t future ready / ABC Nightlife

Date posted: August 2, 2017

The current education system, as great as it once might have been (and that's debatable), is no longer up to the heavy lifting of tomorrow's employment and life landscapes. It was custom-built for on an industrial revolution model of work and prepared students for a known world, where work and careers were set and teaching systematically towards known outcomes made perfect sense. It was a world where we taught just in case, where the learner had to be self-sufficient and filled to the brim with lots of information, just in case they ever needed it.

Today’s school starters are unemployable in 2032 / ABC Far North, Hong Kong Radio 3

Date posted: January 30, 2017

“Half of all children starting kindergarten this year have no chance of getting a job in 2032, if we continue to educate them the way we currently are” is one of the findings in a new bold trend report exploring the world of work in 2030 compiled by Australian futurist, Morris Miselowski, one of the world’s leading business and education visionaries. In 2030, 1 in 4 cars sold will be fully autonomous. Robots, Artificial Intelligence, Drones and Connected Cities will all be as ordinary as gas, electricity and water. Mobile phones, keyboards and mice will be relegated to museums and the notion of 9 - 5 Monday to Friday work will have given way to project and t

This is the career advice I gave to my kids – ABC Far North

Date posted: May 23, 2016

advice-for-younger-self-011The question I get asked nearly every day is "What career advice would you give your kids?" and answering it's easy, because mine have just finished high school and this is the condensed version of what I told them:

  1. you only need to find your direction, not your lifelong path
  2. you're going to have 14 jobs and 6 careers, not all of them connected to whatever you study or do straight out of school, so don't worry if you get it wrong
  3. you're going to have create work for yourself and self manage your career
  4. on top of great institutional and life long learning, the traits that

Augmented. Virtual and Mixed Reality / ABC Far North

Date posted: May 9, 2016

3 Oculus Rift, Facebook's $2 billion, Augmented Reality headset goes on retail sale this week in the States and seems destined to bring this industry into the mainstream. Ahead of this and the imminent release by numerous other headset manufacturers ABC's Far North Kier Shorey and I took a look at this new tech and what is may be capable of. Augmented Reality adds additional information on top of the a real world - things head up display on a car, Virtual Reality closes of the real world and takes you to a digital world and mixed reality does a bit of both depending on your need and what's being viewed. These tech's have been around in sci-fi for 100+ years and yes we've been

Child March 16

What does the workplace future hold for today’s preschoolers?

Our kids will have 14 jobs in six careers, and 60 percent of the tasks they’ll do in 2020 have not been invented yet, according to Melbourne-based futurist Morris Miselowski (businessfuturist.com). Where will those jobs be, and what will they be like? GAME IT! When Morris told parents years ago their children would be gaming for a job, they were horrified. Gamification is going to be where a lot of the jobs are, with $80,000 starting salaries. Virtual realities can be used to trial new habits, teach p

FB Live and too much homework / Hong Kong Radio 3

Facebook_Live A picture paints a thousand words, a video a million and perhaps that explains why Mark Zuckerberg is so adamant to make Facebook Live the must have in live streaming and also why its News Feed was recently tweaked to bring these live broadcasts to the top of content displayed. Facebook has been trialing this service for a couple of months allowing celebs to connect directly with their fans and in this short time they've had 246,000 live streams and 5.67 billion views and to kick-start what will hopefully be lots of interesting content Facebook is approaching influencers, celeb
