ESSAY CONTEST 2024

THE NEXT EDUCATION


We hear from people of all ages that change in the world is very hard to understand—much less to manage—and is bound to get even more so. But they seem to have different trends in mind. What about you? Do you see a world going “crazy” and if so, in what way?
When you envision your own work and life ahead, are you worried by technological change—or is it geopolitical, societal, ecological, psychological/socio-emotional, or some other kind of disruption you wish you felt more prepared for?
In your essay, first tell us the greatest source(s) of turbulence you see ahead, then reflect on what kind of leadership that demands.
What capacities will you and your peers need more of to work together productively and navigate the turbulence?
Whether it’s  decision-making or systems-thinking faculties, or moral compass orientation or abilities to recognize and motivate talent, has your education  put enough emphasis on it?
If you could design the “next education” how would its focus change?


When drafting your essay please consider the topic-related questions and their focus areas below:


Identifying Challenges: What are the most pressing sources of disruption in our world today, and how do they shape your outlook on future education?

 

Leadership for Tomorrow: What qualities and capabilities will tomorrow's leaders need to collaborate and navigate through the turbulence of our times?
 

Educational Readiness: How does the current education system equip young people with the necessary skills and competencies to meet the challenges ahead? If not, what transformative changes are needed?
 

Evolving Models: In light of continuous global shifts, how should the traditional model of education change?
 

Self-Directed Learning: How important has it become to take charge of your own educational journey?  What implications does personalised education have for formal educational institutions?
 

Future of Learning and Teaching: Amidst the dynamics of continuity and change, what elements of education should be preserved, and what aspects need to evolve or disappear?
 

Bridging Divides: What innovative approaches can ensure that education becomes truly accessible to all, bridging socio-economic and csocio-cultural gaps effectively?


Through your essays, we seek to explore these critical questions, offering insights that could guide the reimagining of education for a world in flux. Share your visions, propose solutions, and join us in a collective effort to redefine the essence and objectives of education for the next generation.
