People in increasing numbers are craving meaning and purpose at work. New insights gleaned from our Future of Education Convening indicate that adopting attitudes of lifelong learning in the classroom benefits students later in life as they navigate professional development.
Our experts highlight the harmful consequences of technology overuse in the classroom. Instead, a balance of low-tech learning supports skills development and increases student exposure to diverse ways of thinking.
The learning environment shapes how students understand our interconnected world. An emphasis on partnership and connection will help young people foster a sustainable worldview.
Pervasive learning includes formal, informal, and social learning approaches to develop well-rounded skills in the classroom. By teaching practical skills and social awareness alongside formal knowledge, students develop confidence and adaptability to ensure a sustainable future.
