Ultra Lateral Learning
Education is evolving at a faster pace than any period in recent history. In fact, 85% of the jobs that today’s students will enter into in 2030 haven’t been invented yet (source: Dell Technologies), meaning there is a growing awareness that curriculums and methodologies need to evolve to meet tomorrow’s reality. In this month’s theme - Ultra-lateral Learning - we explore how the future of learning is expanding beyond the four walls of a traditional classroom.
We look at new platforms of adaptive language, video games that tackle mental health, hybrid sensorial playgrounds, open-source creative libraries and other formats that examine how modern education is responding to an innate human need of play, discovery and personal fascination. In the presentation we define four emerging themes of change, which are brought to life with contextual insights, opportunity areas and best-in-class case study examples.
