The power of the collective learning experience.
Information is accessible as ever before. Knowledge is no longer only confined to libraries and schools, the whole world is literally in the palm of our hand. Immense amounts of data are being created, curated and shared by the crowd every single second and learning is becoming by essence a highly social and collective experience.
Education will play an influential role in helping us learn how to communicate better and use the power of language to establish dialogue with others in a generative manner.
Language is the road where knowledge travels.
CONNECTIONS OVER MEMORY
Learning how to learn
More than requiring us to memorize and retain data, education will be responsible for helping us master the art of learning how to learn.
In a world where everything we need to know is just out there, the ability to make connections between bits of data and consciously explore and navigate complex waves of information will be crucial to help us discover, learn and practise new skills and competences.
Curating data that drives better choices
To understand is to perceive patterns.
Being capable of rapidly curate and synthesize information and transform it into applied knowledge will help our decision making process be more effective and efficient.
New digital tools and mental processes will help us filter and distinguish relevant content from just noise.
Looking for learning how to code? Choosing a new summer course on Philosophy? Picking which marketing book to read?: We will be experts in understanding possibilities, and taking the best possible decision in a short period of time.
WHO TO LOOK OUT FOR:
Education as a continuous practise throughout our lives
Just like health, wellness or spirituality, education will be a continuous journey throughout our entire lives.
The capacity to design and implement long term sustainable learning experiences will be a relevant competence to ensure that we never stop educating ourselves, and that we acquire new skills relevant to the present times over the years.
