"In Daxing District of Beijing, where gmtlight is located, there are several relatively large commercial retail centers, which have been closed in succession in the past few years. What hasn't been closed is just barely maintained. Entering the shopping mall gives people a sad feeling. On the contrary, the express industry has become very busy. The people who send express mail come and go, busy all the time. " Mr. Niu said.
This shows that our traditional work is being challenged.
Recently, in the world education forum, Ma Yun delivered a speech saying that the world is changing rapidly, and the most urgent thing today is education reform. Where is today's education going and what kind of people our children want to be? This is what we need to think together today.
In 20 years' time, he says, 50 per cent of jobs may now disappear. China has 15 million newborns last year, and the next 50 years depend on those 15 million. What kind of education they have will also affect the world.
Ma Yun pointed out that in the digital age, let's really seriously think about what is the difference between people and machines. If we are worried that machines will replace humans, this is your problem. If the samples are standardized, you will be replaced.
In addition, Ma said, education in the digital age must be 120 ways for 100 children, because 20% of people may not abide by the rules like me. The industrial age turns people into machines, and the digital age turns machines into people. Education has to change, schools have to change, and classrooms have to change.
