Change schools, change world

Schools must transform how they deliver the experience and purpose of learning, if we are going to meet the demands of the changing the world.

The invention of the world wide web in 1990 and the arrival of one planet with no boundaries, referred to by Marshall McLuhan (1911-1980)  as the “global Village” which followed has changed how we relate to each other and the world. Compulsory Education was designed for the social controls of an industrial revolution, and although governments have made some moves to catch up, schools are no longer fit for purpose.  Finland however are on to something that’s going to make them world leaders in transforming how we think about and deliver education as we know it,  towards developing people who will be transforming just about everything.
