› Education In Exponential Times
The future of humanity will be radically different than what we see today. But is our youth prepared to live in such a world? Are we equipping them with the skills and values necessary to be adaptable, innovative, and purpose-driven in such a world? Our traditional, industrial-era educational models are simply outdated. What is required is not an incremental change in education, but rather an entire overhaul of the current system. It will take creative imagination to develop new models for 21st-century education. This is where innovators in education like Dr. Luis Rey will come into the picture. In his groundbreaking speech, he will shed a light on the new education from a point of view of youth and the future expectations that an exponential evolution holds.
