The Future of Education is Here

Leave a comment

The future of education is here, it is just unevenly distributed.

Sugata Mitra and Charles Leadbeater are international leaders providing glimpses of the future of education. Through their excellent work they create and report on prototypes of learning that are preparing students for the 21st century.

While most of us are stuck in traditional 20th century systems we are conscious that they cannot deliver citizens who are prepared for the 21st century.

  1. Most of us are not aware of how fast the world is changing outside the school gates.
  2. Leading educators are conscious of how incompetent we are in trying to prepare kids for 21st century careers.
  3. Sugata Mitra and Charles Leadbeater are competent and conscious of the pockets of knowledge that they are sharing.
  4. If you ever hear of anyone who thinks they are unconsciously competent they are probably just not aware of what is going on.

There are pockets of innovation and experimentation happening across Western Australia.

We need to start sharing our ideas so that we can stand on the shoulders of the giants amongst us.

Our first task is to start talking to each other.

I went to uni because my girlfriend was going to uni. I had no idea. I struggled through my degree. I struggled to avoid teaching. I struggled to find my way in the world beyond school. After washing cars and working in bars I went into marketing and then became an English teacher. It didn't stop there. I went into TAFE, then into HR, then into designing training programs for industry before going into system design and IT. At one stage I became a world expert on collaboration frameworks!! Now I am an expert in career paths from school in Western Australia. You can tap into my expertise by subscribing to my newsletter for West Australian high schools or by working with me online as we design your perfect next step.
