National Curriculum (introduced in 1988) is very much entrenched into our educational DNA, and despite tweaks to our education system, we are still learning based on the Industrial Revolution model.
That model was very relevant at the time, but due to technology advancing at such an exponential rate, we find ourselves in the digital and innovation era.
Historically, the teacher and books were the main source of knowledge for pupils. In this new innovation era there is an abundance of knowledge and information via the internet. The internet and technology have transformed the way we learn and absorb information, especially over the last five years. Huge changes in technology will be happening in the next ten years and beyond.
The above graph from a Peter Diamandis presentation shows the historic linear trend followed by teachers, students, Industry, employers, employees, politicians and the like.
The sudden advancements in technology mean we are falling way behind the technological “Knee of Curve”, leaving a shortfall in relevant education and how it’s delivered.
We will be posting further information on how education should be delivered in this fast changing world.
In the meantime we think you will find the following link from Peter Diamandis regarding the future of education, please click here to visit the YouTube video.
