Futures of Education

UNESCO, Oct 11, 2019

UNESCO has launched an initiative called 'Futures of Education', "a global initiative to reimagine how knowledge and learning can shape the future of humanity and the planet." This is the project website. The initiative is frmed around the idea of 'learning to become', that is, "a philosophy of education and an approach to pedagogy that views learning as a process of continual unfolding that is ongoing and life-long. To think in terms of "becoming" is to invoke a line of thought that emphasizes potentials, rejects determinism and expresses a flexible openness to the new." Via eLearning Africa.
