The Future Of Education

9:30 - 10:15am  

Grant Dusting, Social Researcher And Director Of Strategy At McCrindle

Now more than ever, education is experiencing seismic shifts. With Generation Alpha (those born since 2010) heading off to high school for the first time ever in 2022 and COVID changing the way we learn and work, it's essential to prepare for the future.

 

Parents are engaging with independent schooling more like customers, while social media and digital integration is transforming learning spaces, places, and styles. Today’s students will be entering a workplace unlike anything we’ve yet seen.

 

In this presentation, Grant will provide insights into the future of education and explore how school leaders can prepare today's Generation Alpha students to be lifelong learners and active community members, equipping them to thrive in the changing world of work and life beyond school.
