The Future of Education
The dominant conceptualisation of education in the world today is still largely rooted in the vision of the industrial society of the 19th century. Indeed, the factory model of mass education processes learners by age groups, in separate facilities, through the transmission of compartementalised knowledge, and the use of standardized approaches to learning, assessment and certification.
This model is increasingly being challenged by a combination of both an acceleration of factors of societal change, as well as of new unforeseen crises and shocks. As we re-examine our conceptualizations of progress and models of societal development, so we must also critically examine our current models of education.
