How is education developing to address a fast changing society?
Our last Monthly Networking Event before the summer you are going to have an opportunity to hear from experts how the educational sector is adapting to a fast changing society. The world is facing unprecedented challenges on a social, economic and environmental level caused by accelerating globalisation and even faster rate of technological advancement. In an environment of great uncertainty of where all these changes will lead to, the educational sector has to help children, students and workers to prepare for new realities.
We have been fortunate to find two educational experts prepared to give us insights into what changes they see and are working on in schools, universities and in the workplace. Furthermore the talk will focus on developments in the labour market and the demand for skills globally, the implications for education and training and how skills and education revolution, with online learning, gamification, nano-degrees and badges is disrupting existing models.
Subject that will be covered are:
What knowledge, skills, attitudes and values will today’s students need to thrive and shape in the ‘new world’?
How can educational systems develop these competencies effectively?
