Education in 2030

Holon IQ, Jun 06, 2019

This report has some flaws but it is overall a far better snapshot of the future of learning than many of its contemporaries. It draws from both the 'top down' - looking at data and research from sources like the World Bank and OECD - and the 'bottom up' - analyzing hundreds of news articles, blog posts and commentaries from a wide array of sources. This leads to a picture where five scenarios dominate - education as usual, global giants, regional rising, peer-to-peed, and robo revolution. These aren't depicted as alternatives per se - they're all at play in our complex environment, influenced by (and influencing) governments, markets, research, etc., each to a different degree. I like this report a lot, and my brain feels a lot like the graph diagrammed here.
