    13. 13. 13 Click to edit Master title style tom fleming / creative consultancy / An education system reoriented from its industrial-era focus on maths and reading to a broader set of personal, creative and intellectual skills necessary for working alongside the ‘smart new machines’.
    14. 14. 14 Technology alone is not the answer Currently our education institutions respond to shifts in technology and the required skills to leverage the potential from such technology. Ideally, they would collaborate with technology providers and businesses to explore the innovation potential of new and emergent technologies and co-create the required skills offer: In the digital media industry the only way to stay competitive is to use the emergent technologies before others adopt them. It’s the pioneers, early adopters and risk-takers that succeed (Dr John Manley, HP Labs). tom fleming / creative consultancy /
