Education is a basic need. Economic and social development depends on it; the ability for individuals to reach their full potential depends on it; business success depends on it.

Disruptive forces are already changing the landscape of education as traditional face-to-face learning moves towards virtual and interactive learning, However, educational institutions – whether primary, secondary or tertiary – need to step out of their comfort zones to reflect an increasingly complex world. Constantly developing technology, the mindsets of the new digital natives and future skills challenges demand radical shifts both in educational content and delivery.

So what will it take to reshape the education “industry” and prepare our educational systems and institutions for the future – in fact, who should the educators be?

This short presentation accompanies the GT Briefing May 2014: Preparing for a new generation of learners and workers.
