Roads Less Traveled: Alternative Approaches to Education
The world is changing fast. Yet around the globe, education systems largely still adhere to the century-old, industrial-age factory model. In the face of fake news, mass migration, rising inequality and digital disruption, vital skills such as media literacy, empathy, collaboration and creativity remain largely absent from school curriculums.
Fortunately, bold innovators are challenging the status quo, designing alternative models of education and fostering skills that are often overlooked, offering learners paths that were never available to them before. They are creating new norms; moving innovation from the margins to the mainstream.
