The Future - Education

In the future, we will not be paid for what we know. Why? Because the internet already "knows" everything. Employers will not need to pay for knowledge (like they did in the past). So what will employers be paying for? Employers will pay us for what we can do with what we know. Our education system need to adapt to this reality or it will become irrelevant. With knowledge at our fingertips (the internet), do we need to still teach students the way we do? Why not teach students how to access information and knowledge on the internet and let them learn for themselves? Now that would be a skill that would serve them well in the future.

What do you think?
