The technology skills we need in the future

If you are an adult over 30 reading this, then since you were at school entire new industries have emerged, and boomed - centred largely around the advances in technology. As a result, we begin the need to question what technology skills our students will need in the future to be ready for the workplace upon leaving education. Whereas once the skills that employers looked for including things like typing speeds and the ability to fill in an Excel spreadsheet,  now skills such as the ability to digitally collaborate, being able to share/store data electronically and social media skills are often also looked for in potential employers.
So during our DRET Vision Day at Google HQ in London, we asked students what they thought would be important tech skills that they will need to have to be successful in the workplace. For added engagement, we let them loose with green screens!
Take a look at the video and the skills that our students think will be invaluable for the future:
