Ideas, inspiration and a bit of random.

An Education rethink?

Posted on | June 21, 2010 | No Comments

There is no better place to be than the UAE when it comes to rethinking how education can, should and might be delivered to meet the challenges the next generation will face.

Primary and secondary education is rapidly evolving in the UAE and trying to come to grips with the lessons from welfare states around the world as it crafts its own hybrid system.

One thing is for sure a complete hands off system does not work.

What if we retooled education from KG through University around the idea of significant interactions?

What if the issues of economy and society were encouraged to link and not sit alone?

What if we saw a vertical integration of KG through University education with partnerships on a global scale?

Of course this requires a true paradigm shift.

Dr. Chris Reynolds may be on to something as he talks about his vision of the education to come.
