“Education is a big challenge today. If we don’t change it, we will have a problem in thirty years, because the way we are taught is the same as it was 200 years ago: it is based on knowledge. We cannot teach our children to compete with machines. They will be smarter than humans. We need To teach children unique things that machines cannot catch. Only in this way will our children have a chance in thirty years” [Jack Ma – 2017].
