WS 3. Future Time Traveller  — Digital Inclusion in Career Guidance for Generation Z

future time traveller

The future is now, and as the world is devel­oping faster than ever before through techno­logical advance­ments this has brought new possi­bil­ities to the world of career guidance and devel­opment. Digital innova­tions create oppor­tu­nities to empower young people, improve society and grow economies. Individuals risk falling behind if they do not have the right skills to adapt and businesses will struggle to innovate and grow if they cannot find appro­pri­ately skilled workers. The Future Time Traveller project, a career game in 3D virtual world for exploring the future trends, jobs and skills, is committed to trans­forming the lives of Generation Z through career guidance that incor­po­rates innov­ative and immersive games-based learning scenarios for preparing the next gener­ation for the jobs of the future.

This ‘Innovation workshop’ will discuss the impor­tance and potential of game-based career guidance in discov­ering the jobs of the future; the skills young people will need in an increas­ingly digitised world and how to incor­porate such technology into your provision. It will include a demon­stration of (with the option to try) the ‘Future Time traveller’ game we have developed which allows young people to explore the range of jobs that could exist in the Year 2050!
