The way to overcome being automated: Find skills robots can't do. 

Day by day, year by year, machines are taking over basic tasks like data collection and processing, leaving the higher-order stuff to humans. The more automation eats away at the edges of our jobs, the more we'll need to show we're still masters of the type of thinking skills robots can't yet do.

That trend is pushing a framework developed more than six decades ago back into the fore. In 1956, the education theorist Benjamin Bloom and his colleagues developed what's since become known as Bloom's Taxonomy, a hierarchy of six types of cognitive goals they believed education should address. In 2017, it's looking more relevant than ever.
