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!
