Preparing Students for Life After School

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.

SEE SOMETHING! GET EXCITED! TELL EVERYONE!!! That pretty well sums up my approach to life. As I find the next bright new shiny course, unbelievable job offer or prediction about the world of work.......I now apply a "Bulldust Filter" honed through years of mistakes. I don't want my grandkids to be blinded by information or be to scammed by a con artist selling a quick course to success..... so I filter the bulldust so that they get the right information at the right time to help them to engage with the emerging world. I share my filtered knowledge because... I SEE SOMETHING. GET EXCITED. TELL EVERYONE.
