The future of Education | Jon Richardson and the Futurenauts

Really great podcast from John Richardson and the Futurenauts on the future of education. There is a great discussion on the need to move away from the conventional measures of progress (3Rs) to measures that will help to create happy and successful children and citizens. They call it the 3Cs: creativity, compassion and critical thinking. These skills are especially important to help equip children with the skills needed to navigate the Internet and Social Media, with all of its fake news and pressures of conformity that they bring.

We loved the line about the proven benefits of the Scandinavian model where "Kids are getting to think more ecologically as if they're a part of an interconnected and interdependent system and not little atomized individuals who thrive on social media."

We highly recommend a listen, if you manage to find some time to unwind!
