Diagnostic of future education by education innovation expert Dr. Kim, Jiyoung!
“Don’t hold on to the disappearing trend. Learn the upcoming changes to future education!”
Power of self, human, creativity, collaboration, and lifelong learning.
If you are worried about the future that your child will be facing in 10 years, you must learn about the future education code now!
Do you follow the trend as it changes, or do you go in the reverse direction? Aren’t you holding on to things that will disappear soon? If you want your child to grow up to be an outstanding individual, you need to look further at 10 years from now rather than just 1 year from now.
Until now, many children studied hard with the goal of going to the university. When they reach the goal of going to the university, it should be the beginning of their life as an adult, but they stop trying. They have achieved the goal and ran out of steam.
Children who have never asked why and never said no are unable to challenge themselves. They have no problem to follow the already paved path, but do not have the courage and freedom to create their own paths.
Times are always changing, but self should not be swayed. The child has to be rooted in place at the face of changes and have a firm compass to direct oneself.
In order for this to happen, parents need to know first what changes are coming to future education. Power of self that is needed for growth. Power of human that is needed to face machines. Power of creativity that can create new value. Power of collaboration to work together in a smart way. Power of lifelong learning that can sustain us. These five powers are the core codes of future education. Education innovation expert Dr. Kim, Jiyoung suggests a clear direction for the future of education as well as how to teach the children to develop these powers.
