On September 20, our strategic foresight team partnered with Remake LearningCarnegie Mellon University’s Entertainment Technology CenterEducation Uncontained and local high school students from Quaker Valley High and Nazareth College and Career Prep to create a simulation as part of the Thrival Festival’s Life.Code Interactive Experience.
We simulated a hiring process from the year 2040. The simulation sought to give participants the experience of applying for work in the year 2040 by having them visit the Department of Lifelong Learning’s Algorithmic Hiring Center. While visiting the center, participants used HoloLens to take a short quiz to “update their readiness profile” and were then matched “algorithmically” with jobs from The Future of Learning: Redefining Readiness from the Inside Out. The simulation concluded with an exit interview, where participants were asked about key readiness skills.
