Education & Preparing for Disruption (Stefanie Leong, IB)

According to Alvin Toffler, “”The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.”” With the advent of COVID 19, the fourth industrial revolution and the need to pivot to online learning have been expedited at an exponential rate. At this point, the future is characterized by changes which we cannot fully comprehend yet: the roles of data, artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things are still to be fully realised – this is in addition to understanding how new technologies are changing the way we live, learn and work.

This keynote talk will focus on what we need to prepare our institutions, our students, and ourselves for the disruptions of the future. How do we adapt a mindset that allows for growth and learning? What skills do we need to impart to our students? And perhaps, most importantly, how can we create strategies that will shift with the terrain of curriculum and instruction in the age to come?

Key Takeaways:

        • Identifying and analyzing skills needed to build and rebuild student skill sets in the shifting landscape of the future
        • Investigating the place that education, particularly the K-12 system, has in equipping students for that shifting future landscape
        • Examining the fluctuating link between identity, career, and meaning/meaningfulness for students and employees
        • Discussing how the currency of information has changed and will change cognition, behavior, and learning in the years to come and what can be done to cope with these changes

Framing Education Through the Lens of University in a Post-COVID 19 World (Dr. Alan Cromlisch, CEO & Founder, MOTIV Impact)

Tertiary education serves a place to explore topics, grow personally and professionally, and prepare students to enter the job market while learning from leading experts. In light of the COVID 19 pandemic, the quickening of Industry 4.0, the rise of automation, IoT, and AI will reshape not only the role universities play in society but also what is learned. Universities must be aware of the current and future trends so that they can educate students who can competently enter the job market with the necessary skills, lead innovation, and drive results. Industry experts emphasize that the need for hard skills, such as programming and finance, will continue to play a role, but their accessibility and ease of use will continue to grow. As a result, the emphasis on soft skill development will be necessary to facilitate success. This talk will focus not just on technology but how it must be applied to the human experience.

Key Takeaways:

        • Focusing on students’ strengths to set them up for success
        • Guiding students in determining individual learning styles and levels of preparedness
        • Putting application and practice at the center of education
        • Applying the international frameworks to ASEAN schools
