An Exponential Education is our response to the transformative challenges in our modern society, including the way we look at the lifelong learning processes. On the one hand, ICT has become a familiar part of Education systems all over the world, while, on the other, we observe that the ‘extended classroom’ in necessary for the 21st century societies to address challenges from both different and complementary points of view.
Klaus Schwab, Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, makes explicit in his book ‘The Fourth Industrial Revolution’ that unparalleled change at a quick path will substantially modify the world as we know it in the next few years. Therefore, the 2030 Agenda takes the form of a temporal frontier foreshowing what the world to be. We must start taking the required - vital for our survival - measures to forge the future we want, beginning with a reconceptualization of the learning process.
To do that, Education must take center stage as an essential component of equitable and sustainable development. Education must be intimately linked, in real-time, to the evolving needs and challenges of our society, economy, and environment. To this effect, education can no longer be a passive construct, but it must rather be embedded into our dynamic new world, enabled by technology. The algorithm for that enormous task is based in Exponential technologies, involving Internet of Things, Augmented Reality, Artificial intelligence, etc. To reach the Sustainable Development Goals, we will have to have a hand in transforming the way humanity thinks, learns, and acts.
We aim to transform the way in which humanity learns and experiences the world through technology and innovation in education.
