When you were younger, did you think that your life would be as immersed in technology as it is today? I certainly didn’t. And I’m sure that my parents didn’t either! When I was in grade school there was only one computer in the entire school for the students to use. Technology has certainly changed our day to day living. Take today for example; I went to the bank and used an ATM, I went to the grocery store and used a self-check out kiosk, I used my app on my smart phone to pre-order and pay for my drink…I didn’t even have to talk to a human until I picked up my drink!
This got me to thinking…how is all of this technology going to affect Mini Me and her future career? Some jobs that we know today will become obsolete and there will be a bunch of new jobs that haven’t even been dreamed of yet. It’s up to us as parents to make sure that our kids are prepared for what the future has to offer.
CST Learning Project Competition
Our friends over at CST get this. They just launched their annual CST Learning Project competition which funds new learning activities for children with $250,000 up for grabs. (They take the future seriously). It’s part of their cool Inspired Minds program that also includes Careers 2030—a deep dive into the possible careers our kids will have. (Robot Counsellor? Data Miner? Rewilder?)

Parent Life Network and Canada Scholarship Trust (CST) Foundation will be hosting a Twitter Party and you’re invited! Join us for an hour of fun to discuss the future, robots and all of the possible jobs that will be available to our little ones. We’ll be giving away $1,000 in that hour!
