KnowledgeWorks recently released a new publication of Forecast, a report which analyzes the trends and modifications expected in the next 10 years in the learning environment. The latest edition, Forecast 3.0, allows education stakeholder to access consumerist investment and assistance in a simplified and improved manner.
Forecast can be used by current educators to redefine their dedicated roles as per their capabilities. The current educators will decreasingly depend on credentialing from definite institutions and rely more on acquired skills and certifications while choosing career options across professions.
Forecast was initially launched by KnowledgeWorks in 2005. The latest edition, Forecast 3.0, Recombinant Education: Regenerating the Learning Ecosystem is carrying forward the company’s original research. The latest edition has utilized inputs from the Institute for the Future and has been published in association with Saveri Consulting.
The work for Forecast 3.0 was carried out by Jillian Darwish, VP, Organizational Development and Foresight at KnowledgeWorks and Katherine Prince Grimsley, Senior Director at KnowledgeWorks. In a statement, Darwish said, “The forecast aims to help respond to disruptions of the coming decade with creativity rather than fear to prepare learners for an uncertain future. At KnowledgeWorks, we hold a steadfast commitment to igniting challenging, inspiring, and disruptive conversations as a means of catalyzing new ways of thinking and acting that radically increase the chances for all learners to thrive in our rapidly changing world.”
According to Prince Grimsley, the organization has been successful in unveiling latest permutations, which not only advantageously utilize the possibilities of current life, but also fulfill the goals of educating the learners to flourish in the future.
Brian Ross, CEO of KnowledgeWorks said, "Since we started examining trends shaping the future of education and learning in 2005, we have seen both tremendous innovation and tremendous challenge. We expect both to continue over the coming decade. But we also expect that the degree to which the next 10 years are shaped by innovation or hampered by challenge will largely reflect the choices that we all make today.”
According to Chris Tebben, Executive Director, Grantmakers for Education, anyone interested in the prospects of education will find the forecast ideal.
