The authors argue that one difficulty with designing curricula to expose students to what they will need to know for their careers is rapid change in the landscape of available professions, due to automation and offshoring; and that preparations we make to ready students for the world of today will be outdated by the time they graduate. However, automation is not affecting all types of jobs equally. They explore implications for education and what students need to know, and issues for transfer, core concepts, and what constitutes essential and non-essential curriculum content. Most content will exemplify a specific concept that has a high potential for being leveraged to understand many aspects of the world.
