In this paper, we examine i) the impact of technological change on labour market outcomes since the computer revolution of the 1980s, and ii) recent developments in digital technology – including machine learning and robotics – and their potential impacts on the future of work.

Innovating education and educating for innovation: the power of digital technologies and skills is a 2016 publication by the OECD.

Education systems are critically important for innovation through the development of skills that nurture new ideas and technologies. However, whereas digital technologies are profoundly changing the way we work, communication and enjoy ourselves, the world of education and learning is not yet going through the same technology-driven innovation process as other sectors.

This report discusses the available evidence on innovation in education, the impact of digital technologies on teaching and learning, the role of digital skills and the role of educational industries in the process of innovation.
