The world has changed (a lot) and if we can't adapt we run the risk of becoming irrelevant and replaced. Creativity, and looking at the world in new ways will be what helps us thrive in this new world, where so many of the existing skills are being automated or shipped offshore. The curriculum that is supposed to provide opportunities for creativity often lacks the real teeth to do so and our job as contemporary educators is to make sure that creativity, innovation and thinking different are highly valued and rewarded in our classrooms, even if the system in general doesn't measure and support these things. We need to ensure that we do great things with kids in spite of the system. Finally, the impetus for maintaining our motivation and our understanding of the changing world can only come from surrounding ourselves with networks of like-minded people that can support us in our work every day.
