Where To From Here?

29 August 2011


I was reading a news article in the Sydney Morning Herald today and came across the following quote by the US writer Thomas Friedman.

Young people must be given more tools to not so much find their next job as to invent it.

I’m not sure that this is the case.  I think there will always be a select few who are entrepreneurial and have the capacity and skills to be creating new industries and jobs with the majority of people working in a job serving their vision.

Having said that, I think there is a real need to participate in greater discussion about the goals of education in the context of a rapidly changing future.

Take a look at this video that shows how our students futures are rapidly changing.

What made the above quote even more interesting was another article talking about the new national curriculum being implemented in Australia.  At the moment the national curriculum has stalled with some states not prepared to sign up and various academics debating over the pedagogical details.

It seems to me that this would be the perfect time to take a step back and take a look at the big picture.
