What Problems Do You Want to Solve?

Jaime Casap, the former Google Global Education Evangelist, said:

Don’t ask kids what they want to be when they grow up, but what problems do they want to solve.

This changes the conversation from who do I want to work for, to what do I need to learn to be able to do that.

Doesn’t this mean that we as parents and educators need to rethink how we prepare our children for an unknown job market and unknown needs?
