Lifelong learning – The future of education

SHARE

Education experts have been saying it for years: we need to change the way schools teach. It’s no longer enough to memorise everything or learn a maths equation. If we want to be relevant in a world where Artificial Intelligence will take over the most mechanical and operational tasks, the students of the future (and of today) must become unique beings, capable of contributing value that differentiates them from machines.

Andreas Schleicher is Director of Education & Skills at OECD and was the driving force behind the PISA tests (a study that measures students’ performance from different countries in different subject areas). In his testimonial he discusses how we should be educating students today and in the future, "the problem is that we have 21st century students, 20th century teachers and schools designed for the 19th century."
