Learning to cope with work in future - Diana Clement, NZ Herald

'The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn," wrote Alvin Toffler. His predictions are coming true as the very nature of work is changing before our eyes. Technology is disrupting a wide range of professions and the workforce is likely to look very different by the time most workers today hang up their briefcases for the last time. We could even find ourselves sending our avatars or holograms to the office instead of ourselves, says AUT professor Tim Bentley, who heads up AUT University's New Zealand Work Research Institute. http://www.nzherald.co.nz/business/news/article.cfm?c_id=3&objectid=11486428
