19 May Future Design Podcast “COVID19 Special” w/Fiona Edwards-Brown – Rethinking Education
What are we educating our children for? Are we setting them up to be our future workers or is there something else that should be in the forefront when we think about our children’s education.
The boomer’s generation had a powerful economic growth so there was optimism for the future. Right now, with the stagnating economy, the future is not so clear. However, our world is changing so drastically, especially with technology’s exponential growth and its strong relationship in our lives, it’s hard to keep up. AI and automation is replacing our jobs and leaving us with choices that we weren’t expecting to have.
Fiona Edwards Brown, the assistant principal of the International School Singapore, shares with us the approach she takes on educating children in a complex time we live in.
