Why CLASSROOMS need to change? The CLASSROOM - as we know it today - has changed little since the Stone Age. Till now the Socratic method of teaching was adequate but now, we have entered the digital age. Technology proliferates quickly and by end-2014 there will be ~2.5 billion smart mobile devices. If we look at the workplace there has been a constant and an increasing shift towards knowledge based jobs in a high tech global economy. The classroom needs to adapt to the changes in the workplace and to prepare the students for future jobs in a new high-tech global economy. This requires development of critical skills for future jobs. Classrooms need to gear up for this change.
