EDUCREATORS -SHAPERS OF THE FUTURE
There is an unprecedented demand in reimagining the education landscape to best prepare our youth for an uncertain future. This shift is accelerated by the digital transformation of our society and the current pandemic. These societal changes are fundamental in nature and bring unprecedented challenges and opportunities. According to Brookings Institution (Learning to Leapfrog-Innovative Pedagogies to Transform Education, September 2019), pedagogical innovation is at the heart of leapfrogging our education system. Primary and secondary school teachers have a significant role to play in skilling tomorrow’s citizens so that they can actively shape the future and fulfil their potential.
Brookings Institution points out that in order to accelerate positive, deep change in education, it is critical for teachers to learn from the experiences of existing transformative approaches in the classroom, namely what other teachers have achieved and how they did it, also to clarify how powerful forms of 21st century learning can be spread and sustained, especially under challenging circumstances.
