In this WebQuest you were introduced to the central question: Will Robots Take My Job? You learned about automation and artificial intelligence and the risks to various industries of losing jobs to these new technologies. You assessed your current and future career goals.
Through this experience, did anything surprise you? Did you reconsider your current or future career goals? What kind of secondary skills did you acquire, if any?
Automation in the workforce is a hot topic these days, especially as we navigate an uncertain future due to COVID-19's effect on the economy. Is your job safe? Maybe you're looking to make a change. Do you have a better idea now of what it takes to transition to a new field? I hope that you have a better understanding of the complicated nature of our current and future workforce landscape.
