4 inspiring kids imagine the future of learning | TEDTalks


After more than 13 years of research convinced him that children have the ability to learn almost anything on their own, 2013 TED Prize winner Sugata Mitra aspires to shape the future of learning by building a School in the Cloud, helping kids “tap into their innate sense of wonder.” In the spirit of Mitra’s invitation to the world to “ask kids big questions, and find big answers,” we asked four brilliant young people to tell us: What do you think is the future of learning?

La iniciativa europea «Nuevas cualificaciones para nuevos empleos» promovida por el CEDEFOP tiene como prioridad anticiparse a los cambios en las necesidades de competencias. El informe "Skills supply and demand in Europe: medium-term forecast up to 2020" [Oferta y demanda de competencias en Europa: previsiones a 2020] realizado en el marco de esta iniciativa recoge la nueva previsión del Cedefop de los cambios en la oferta y la demanda de competencias hasta 2020, que viene a actualizar las previsiones realizadas en el ejercicio 2007/2008. En este análisis se han aplicado nuevos datos y mejores métodos para estimar el impacto a medio plazo de la crisis financiera de 2008 y la posterior recesión.

Europe must focus more on skills than ever before. Skills to adapt and to shape the jobs of tomorrow are essential for Europe’s citizens and businesses to speed up economic recovery. Equally, adequate skills are needed to respond to long-term challenges to compete in the global market, sustain innovation in ageing societies and address climate change. But will the skills that Europe’s citizens have match those needed?

Cedefop’s new skill demand and supply forecast up to 2020 sets the scene for anticipating future trends. The aim of this report is to provide policy-makers, employers, skills providers, employment services and individual learners with better information to make more informed decisions. Europe is on its way to an economy where services and knowledge- and skill-intensive occupations will prevail. But even in occupations that are decreasing, substantial employment opportunities will remain as older generations leave the labour market and need to be replaced. It is evident from the forecast that Europe not only needs to step up investment in education and training, but also encourage employers to use better the skills and talents of their staff. The forecast suggests that aggregate demand and supply trends across countries are converging in the medium to longer term, but we need to dig deeper to grasp what is really going on. Changing skill needs, job polarisation and skill mismatch interact in complex ways. The forecasts in this report shed some light on these phenomena, but better data are urgently needed for more analysis.

Sitio web del proyecto ´2020 Forecast: Creating the Future of Learning`promovido por The KnowledgeWorks Foundation. Su objetivo es explorar un conjunto de dimensiones que en su opinión están transformando nuestro mundo y cómo podemos moldear el futuro del aprendizaje para adaptarnos a estos cambios.

En su página web definen así el proyecto:

 "Over the next decade, the most vibrant innovations in education will take place outside traditional institutions. This 2020 Forecast: Creating the Future of Learning presents a critical dilemma facing these institutions: how to reconcile bottom-up developments in education with the traditional top-down hierarchy that is currently in place. Such peripheral innovation will redefine how learning is organized, who comprises the broad “school community,” and what the actual experiences of learners will be like in the future. The validity and role of formal institutions of education will be challenged by key forces of change and will be reconsidered by an expanding group of stakeholders. Together, the pressures of change and new stakeholder demands will create a new future for learning.

Each of us can take action today to create this future. As the KnowledgeWorks Foundation 2020 Forecast reveals, many of our fundamental relationships – with ourselves, within our organizations, and with systems, societies, and economies – are being re-imagined and recreated.

This website will help you explore how these different dimensions of our world are changing and how we can shape the future of learning. KnowledgeWorks' Institute for Creative Collaboration can help you explore further and apply the 2020 Forecast to your context through strategic learning experiences."
