🔴 Yes, our time period is called Post-modern!!! According to sociologists David Jary & Julia Jary, post-modernity is seen as involving such features as a world of "flux, flow and fragmentation", without absolute values. An end of the dominance of an overarching belief in scientific rationality and a unitary theory of progress, the replacement of empiricists theories of representation and truth, and an increased emphasis on the importance of the unconscious, on free-floating signs/images and a plurality of viewpoints.
🔴 The transformations that are taking place due to the development of digital technology change the nature of knowledge, education and work. Knowledge has value and becomes useful only at the technical point of view. Thus human is training not to know and develop himself but to use his training to the job market, and the experience of education become more fragmented. We must remember training concerns the partial, while education concerns the whole.
🔴 Anything that cannot be stored and expressed digitally can gradually cease to be knowledge. But human in all of his activities communicate and has the need to activate his mind so to be able to have empathy, self-awareness and consciousness, as well as to learn how to recognize and manage his emotions. These "soft-skills" are determined by the mindset, which needs education and experience to evolve.
🔴 The gap between the rapid speed of technology and human can cover the Mentoring, because it's the education in life experience. And that is what an individual need the most. All that called soft-skills, which are not soft, can not acquired through the classical education system and neither can transmitted or digitally encoded by any technological device. The human evolve is a synthetic process and presupposes the activation of emotions and mind.
