Subject: GEMS Future Talks – feedback and summary

Quick update about last week’s GEMSX Future Talks session held at WEK. We had over 80 students from 9 GEMS schools in attendance. The focus was on Future EdTech and its impact on education. If you’d like me to repeat some of this content for your students/teachers/parents do let me know.

We discussed the following:

  • The impact of A.i. on Education and how it is being used in various schools around the world – particularly in China.
  • The uses of Virtual Reality in education
  • The influence of other emerging technologies like drones, 3d printing, and cloud computing on education.
  • The changing student demographics as a result of emerging edtech.
  • The rise of the gig economy and its impact on the economy
  • Future skills and future work.
  • The five drivers of change that will impact education:
    • Automating choices
    • Civic superpowers
    • Accelerating brains
    • Toxic narratives
    • Remaking geographies
  • The Edtech Landscape 3.0 as identified by Navitas Ventures, which analysed $50b invested in 15,000 edtech companies, that make 26 innovation clusters across eight steps of the next generation learning lifecycle.
