What we know for sure (…at the moment)
We have to re-think the very construct of human learning and development. We know that sitting in a box being “taught” is not going to create the kinds of minds we need in the future. This new paradigm & methodology must be fundamentally different, built from the ground up, ensuring we continue to thrive! We think that building a new way of learning that is built on these pillars is a great starting point.
We need to develop humans as
We have the technology and capabilities to cater our curriculum to different learning styles, optimized for the individual’s mental, physical and emotional development level and even their mood or aptitude for a subject or field.
We must use technology to accent transformational and experiential learning without relying on it to do the work for us. There is more than enough documented studies out there to know that the human mind and body develop best through doing and interacting.
Agile FrameworkThis new paradigm and platform must be agile enough to pivot and adjust to the ever changing world and be able to be optimized and improved in a rapid timeline so that we can continually improve upon it and it’s effectivity.
Outcomes BasedWe need to be forward thinking enough to re-design our educational construct so that it is outcomes based. Considering what kinds of thinkers and doers we are going to need in the next 20 – 100 years and how they will need to work together better than we ever could to solve the big problems of tomorrow. We need to find a way to build a tool and a methodology that will support the great minds of the future in a world we cannot yet imagine.
This approach must be fluid enough to adjust to the needs of each individual’s development path, cultural diversity, shifts and changes the individual’s learning pathway.
