Digital transformation: Are you ready for exponential change?

A film by Gerd Leonhard

Gerd Leonhard’s another Video: 7 Principles of Digital Transformation: The Future is No Longer an Extension of the Present! Future of the Car Industry is not selling/owning cars: it’s on mobility! So also: Future of the music industry is not on selling music (Spotify.com has made music almost free)! But it’s on selling convenience, quality, peace of mind, interface…. So (Cf Gerd Leonhard’s other Video) in a world of equal opportunity & equally perfect performance of the skilled, what can education sell, as an industry? Quality, convenience, affordability, zero-failure learning, etc! It’s ‘The End of Good-Enough’ in business! (RP Cf: So, see the conflict between the products of our ed system that focuses on producing ‘Average’! Eg: Amazon coming out with an International Bank – making most of the operations free & instant! So, the future success lies in one’s capacity to keep leaping! The most urgently needed disruption in education will not come from experts in the ed industry alone! (Cf: the disruption in the car industry (driverless cars/hybrid cars/so many other novel features) did not come from car industry giants like Audi or Benz or BMW! It all came from Google & Microsoft! Hence, in education too, technology should not be limited only to ‘doing better’ (quicker/safer/cheaper etc) what the teachers have been doing! So, digitalization or AI should enable the education industry to touch newer/higher levels of achievements in making kids learn! Adaptive Technology (interview with Jack) will do this! Non-Linear, Symphonic Learning experiences made possible by Multiple forms of presentation & assessments through Digital Portfolio & PBL that offer unlocked opportunities to kids for passion-led innovation. Principle 2: Tech & Humanity are increasingly overlapping! Ethics in Technology: (RP Cf: Our logo of EDGES & the screenshot on Digital Ethics here) Civilizations are driven by Technology; but DEFINED by HUMANITY (so should be any business; and particularly Education as it’s the foundation of all businesses & civilization itself !!)
