The future of education
Learning to love learning
Alex Beard draws on his early experiences as a teacher in Elephant and Castle in London, reflecting on how children growing up as digital natives can have their learning experience enhanced by technology.
How should we make the most of AI applications that detect our willingness to take on different learning tasks at different times?
What are the challenges when we educate our children for an unknown future? What are the jobs our children aspire to, and will they exist?
Alex goes on to explore the importance of the human to human learning experience, especially in the realm of motivation to perform certain educational tasks.
We also talk about helping children to learn to love learning, balancing this with their progress, and the importance of carrying the appetite for learning into the workplace as we continue to evolve and take on skills later in life.
