Shifting society in times of exponential change

I'm continuing to read on in the KnowledgeWorks report The Future of Learning.  This post is about imagine how alternative values and diverse perspectives could transform education.
  • Readiness Redefined:  The changing nature of work will bring about a debate about the role of people in the workforce, and what it means to be career-ready.  Schools will no longer push students towards post-secondary options that do not prepare the for the world of work.  Education will prepare learners to continually reskill and upskill.
  • New Benefactors:  Highly empowered individuals will create their own schools and learning communities.
  • Self-Improving Learning Ecosystems:  Broad feedback will be used by learning ecosystems to improve themselves continuously and automatically.  Decision making will expand so that everyone in the learning ecosystem sees themselves as an empowered decision maker.
  • Educating for Impact:  The need to help young people think innovatively and navigate complexity will become increasingly important.  Students will be able to embrace complexity as they become innovators and problem solvers who will actively shape the world around them as part of their education.
This section reminds me of ASB's mission:  
We inspire all of our students to continuous inquiry, empowering them with the skills, courage, optimism, and integrity to pursue their dreams and enhance the lives of others.
