Education to unleash human potential
Personal development and individual growth will become the cornerstone of any educational program.
No matter which discipline or field of studies you are in, everything will start with you, and the purpose of your learning choices.
Ontological design will be a key discipline to help us use the power of our brain to design the kind of mind we want to have, so that then later we can use that mind to design what world we want to create around us.
WHO TO LOOK OUT FOR:
Contributing to our global village
As the world becomes increasingly globalized and highly interconnected, the ability to think and act systemically and understand the interdependence of our global village, will be crucial to deal with local and global challenges.
The new generations of students and professionals will not only have the potential to solve our local issues, but also to serve as a possible solution for millions of people with similar issues around the world, and inspire them with the click of a button.
Experiencing learning in new ways
Cognition and our capacity to understand new ideas and concepts will become a highly sensitory and engaging experience. We no longer need just to “think” about an idea, now we can easily visualize it and construct it in various different formats that can help enhance our ability to better comprehend them.
Learning quantum physics through holographic models? Understanding complex philosophical concepts in the shape of a 3D-printed sculpture?, Learning history by immersing ourselves into a digital projection of past events?: The potential that technology offers to make the learning experience more engaging and interactive is endless.
Using the future as a source of inspiration for the present.
Unpredictability will make future thinking an increasingly relevant skill for navigating rapid change during the coming years.
Being able to imagine, envision and forecast future landscapes for social, political, economic, environmental and technological contexts will be crucial to understand the future implications of our present strategic decisions.
