According to the futurist and philosopher Alvin Toffler, “The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read or write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn.”
The subject of education evokes strong views from all sorts of people. It is multi-billion dollar industry.
In this podcast with my co-host Andrew Horton we give our personal reflections on education and learning.
Do join us as we discuss:
What do we actually mean by education?
How doing well at school so often has little correlation with being successful later in life.
The importance of developing much more than technical skills – there are two other attributes that can either enormously enhance your life or completely derail you.
The dangers of measuring everybody by the same standard.
How so often education systems over time can drain the creative abilities of so many people.
Developing a universal and holistic view of education.
How learning is much more than what we learn at school.
Or in a quote attributed to Mark Twain, “I never let schooling interfere with my education.”
