Abstract

The pace and scale of social, technological, political and economic change have drastically accelerated in recent decades. In the meantime, education systems have been slow to adapt, to promote innovation, and to guarantee sustainable and measurable outcomes. This session will focus on whether and how education systems might better adapt to constantly evolving environments by becoming “learning systems” which encourage ongoing innovation and experimentation. It will also explore how lessons in effective innovation from other sectors may apply to education.
