SkillsFuture Singapore Hackathon 2018

The Future of Work will be confronted and enabled by new and emerging technologies. We may debate the rate and degree of manpower replacement, but what we know is this: Things will change.
The best way to support our citizens is to improve their flexibility and help them to embrace a mindset of continual learning and application. Our goal is to turn passive students of knowledge to proactive learners who develop critical learning skills.
In the age of disruption, those who succeed are likely to be skilled in a myriad of areas, particularly in soft skills. Even as individuals constantly upskill, the reality is, skills have shorter “shelf life”.
Thus, individuals have to experiment with their learning and make informed decisions on achieving skills mastery. Organisations need to support and recognise the acquisition of these skills.
Whether you’re a developer, designer, educator, or student, we want you to become an architect of the Future of Learning. Come join the discussion and co-create with other people who want to do things differently!
The SkillsFuture Singapore Hackathon 2018 invites you to create solutions to help Singaporeans embrace a mindset of lifelong learning, discover their full potential in building deep skills, and achieve their aspirations.
