2. Machines vs. Humans
The never-ending debate as to whether machines would replace humans is a hot topic since the third industrial revolution and was further intensified with the discoveries of the fourth revolution. With intelligent systems and robots bringing accuracy, precision and high productivity rate in different businesses, the question is would humans be outdated soon?
3. New skill sets vs. Traditional Value Systems
Current landscapes demand more than hard work and perseverance to win a job. While positive attitude and basic ethics can get you hired, sustaining a career involves specific skill sets, one that may go beyond the usual comfort zones of tradition. While some jobs may be extinct, new career opportunities would also open for professionals to enter. The question is, are we ready?
We start with education being the cornerstone that prepares communities to face the changes brought about by era shifts. Instead of competing against the inevitable, education systems should be equipped with the tools and assets to enhance the human potential to work and compliment technological changes instead of fighting against it. REX Book Store has acknowledged this fact. Being one of the pillars of education in the Philippines since the 1950s, the company has already conquered several eras of disruption. REX is familiar with the drill of innovating to evolve and give better support in grooming learners so they can take advantage of the opportunities that the fourth industrial revolution offers.
