Emotion is key to the future. Video on future of education, high schools, colleges, universities, curriculum, syllabus, exams, assessments, business schools, MBAs, degree courses - by Dr Patrick Dixon, conference keynote speaker for NAIS.

Most teachers find it hard enough to keep pace with new syllabus requirements, rolled out by government, without having to fundamentally question whether those syllabus requirements are now adequate. When it comes to technology, students may own better and more up to date equipment than teachers have themselves, or than they find in the classroom. Agility of mind, adaptability, willingness to embrace continuous change - these are all things that in theory are easier for younger people. However, even those at High School can rapidly become institutionalised in various ways. They sit in the same place in class, they go to the same part of the cafeteria at lunch time, or to the same coffee shop after school ends. They become creatures of habit. And most young people also conform to their own tribal group - in language, clothing, hair style, music choice and other things. These so-called affinity groups can also be signs of insecurity. People look to belong, and in doing so often limit themselves in terms of activities, options and lifestyle choices. These things can also discourage change. It is why so many students branch out in ways that can shock past friends when they turn up at University / College. Freed from the constraints of previous tribal groups, including home culture, they may more easily explore new thinking and ways of living.

Patrick, I don't know what to say... I watched your 55 min vid on the future of education. I am 23, and can't agree with you more. I've seen my father work hard, I know I must get a degree, and I will. But work life balance is at the top of my list. I want to be talented in my job, to be respected, but I also want to tell my boss, on any day, for any reason, "Hey, I'm going to spend the day with my girlfriend, and WHEN I come back, there will not be a million more things of work/paperwork/projects, built-up on my desk, got it!"
You're so right that we've seen it all before and we have moved on. Success is not money, only part of it. Its not that we don't want to work, I think work is very important, creativity, passion, we are beginning to learn the value of things as the world has sped us into data overload and a shortening of time. And working 50 weeks of the year? Why does a democratized society not see the lunacy? I don't even want to work 50 weeks of year in a career I absolutely Love! What balance is that? I feel all alone on this at times... Thank you for your insights and thoughts, they help me feel a little less so.
