THE CALL FOR A NEEDED REVOLUTION IN EDUCATION

The demand is here – education has to change! What served the past will not serve the future!

The present generation will probably not stay in the same job forever but will have multiple jobs in different fields. Therefore, students need to be prepared for the new working world where the skills they have are transferable. The future calls for, among other things, critical thinking, creativity, innovation, collaboration and good communication and problem-solving skills. Accelerating globalism and technology calls for students to be curious, imaginative, broad-shouldered, trustworthy, and socially and emotionally adept in that they can accept criticism and rejection and work well with many different types of personalities.

An education revolution

To put it into context:

  • What is needed?  A revolution in education.
  • Why is it needed? To cater for the skills needed in the 21st Century; to make learning exciting and relevant; to stimulate thought and action; to prepare children for their future.
  • How is it to be done?  By project based, or thematic, personalized learning which is connected; by recognising differences and regarding social and emotional skills as a priority; by recognising and catering for the different intelligences and ways of learning; by encouraging creativity; by developing 21st Century critical thinkers; by using more eLearning platforms and by keeping abreast of changing technology to assist in teaching and learning.
  • When should this happen? All the time, in a balanced time table, when the opportunity arises and across all learning areas.
  • Where should this take place? In the classroom, at home, outdoors, in different countries, at exhibitions, debates and conferences and on digital devices.
  • Who should be involved? Students, teachers, parents and professionals, in collaboration with others globally.

Parents, the child’s brain needs to be stimulated. Don’t wake up to this fact when the child is in Grade 1! It may just be too late.
