Encouraging AI understanding, Building human relationships and resilience, and accelerating Climate action. How should we prioritise policy and implementation for Stronger, Bolder, Better, Education?
The range and significance of challenges facing education is never ending. Separating what’s important and what’s urgent, then prioritising action makes for hard choices.
We know that technology can improve learning and teaching. It can amplify good practice and scale student support. Technology’s introduction can provide reasons to review of risks, and can lead to changed priorities. It can also be used to strengthen focus on human interaction and relationships. For example, tasks such as presentation of materials or providing simple tests and feedback to student can be taken out of classrooms and lecture halls to leave space for more working together, discussion and creativity. That activity can be particularly important when it leads to developing opportunity to address major issues such climate change and sustainability.
Looking across education from early years through schooling to vocational and on to university and professional learning, EWF will focus on how we should prioritise our policies and establish actions to make education stronger, bolder, and better. By improving learning, teaching in this way, education may also optimise its contribution to building a better world.
