At the end of this month, the Global Youth Time Forum is happening in barcelona. This year the topic is “The New Era of Employment and Education: Solutions for Change”.
ESEI´s Academic Manager Mark Thomson will be delivering a keynote talk on the future of education at the plenary session on Friday 30th, and also sitting on the judging panel to pick the best proposal for net impact on educational improvement. This talk will attempt to make sense of the current buzzwords in education, from the “experiential learning” and the “flipped classroom” to “21st century skills”. What are these things and why should we care? What problems do they really address and what real change can they bring about in education?
