培养技术素养势在必行

达沃斯——世界许多地方,孩子们的成长都被技术所包围。毫不夸张地讲,海量的娱乐、游戏、学习和社交网络都在他们的指尖触手可及。他们的世界靠网络联系在一起。他们首先学会滚动鼠标,之后才学会走路。但尽管他们对自身使用技术的能力信心满满,但太多孩子根本不懂得技术原理。他们也并不真正了解技术怎样支撑他们的生活——以及技术如何塑造他们的未来。

我认为这是一种科技素养悖论。今天的孩子或许是完美的技术消费者,但却极少有人真正懂得技术知识。他们可能乍看上去像是懂行的技术原生代,但他们却很少了解屏幕后面的知识。他们仅仅是被动的使用者,而不具备主动的创造能力。他们中的绝大多数对了解自己如此依赖的技术实际如何运作鲜有兴趣。

这一点有着非常重要的意义。经济生产、销售以及商品和服务的消费方式正在经历根本性的变革。生活的方方面面都在变化。确保正在进行的第四次工业革命对人类产生积极影响的关键是掌握更多科技知识。

    The Next Battle in China’s War on Corruption

    • Chinese President Xi Jinping knows well the threat that corruption poses to the authority of the Communist Party of China and the state it controls. 
    • But moving beyond Xi's anti-corruption purge to build robust and lasting anti-graft institutions will not be easy, owing to enduring opportunities for bureaucratic capture.

    Putting Europe’s Long-Term Unemployed Back to Work

    Across the European Union, millions of people who are willing and able to work have been unemployed for a year or longer, at great cost to social cohesion and political stability. If the EU is serious about stopping the rise of populism, it will need to do more to ensure that labor markets are working for everyone.

    A Belt and Road for the Americas?

    In a time of global uncertainty, a vision of “made in the Americas” prosperity provides a unifying agenda for the continent. If implemented, the US could reassert its historical leadership among a group of countries that share its fundamental values, as well as an interest in inclusive economic growth and rising living standards.

    How Best to Promote Research and Development

    Clearly, there is something appealing about a start-up-based innovation strategy: it feels democratic, accessible, and so California. But it is definitely not the only way to boost research and development, or even the main way, and it is certainly not the way most major innovations in the US came about during the twentieth century.

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.
