Rethink: Caleb Femi says 'creative thinking' is key to students' future

He says that with the cancellation of this summer's major exams because of coronavirus, relying on the existing education system may no longer be the best option for future progress. The British education system has covered itself in a veil for centuries. The veil is the promise that at the end of the road of education, there is security and even prosperity. Will your job be around in 2030? Nearly 40% won't, report says. From shopping online to building cars, robots continue to take over more tasks – and soon may come for your job.

Will your job be around in 2030? Nearly 40% won't, report says

Nearly 40% of U.S. jobs are in occupations that are likely to shrink or be cut by 2030, according to a new report that measures the future of work in America. Office support – which employs almost 21 million Americans – is at risk to losing jobs to digital services. Food service is next on the list, with hotel, fast-food and other kitchens potentially automating the work of cooks and dishwashers.

Top 7 global education themes in 2019. With protests in places as disparate as Paris, Beirut, and Santiago, 2019 saw civil unrest around the world.

Top 7 global education themes in 2019

The role of education in building more democratic societies and informed citizens capable of reaching their full potential, while always important, has never been more critical in a time rife with inequality and discord. As yet another year comes to a close, we at the Center for Universal Education (CUE) reflect on seven key education trends and themes that give us hope for a more prosperous future in the next decade.

Educating students for their future, not our past

Schools are inherently conservative social systems, as parents we get nervous when our children learn things we don’t understand, and even more when they no longer study things that were important for us. Teachers are more comfortable teaching how they were taught than how they were taught to teach. And politicians can lose an election over education issues but rarely win one over education, because it takes way more than an election cycle to translate good intentions into better results.

The biggest risk to schooling today isn’t its inefficiency, but that our way of schooling is losing its purpose and relevance. And when fast gets really fast, being slower to adapt makes education systems quickly disoriented. These days, digitalisation is connecting people, cities, countries and continents in ways that vastly increase our individual and collective potential. Moving beyond content knowledge.
