Next Generation Survival Kit Workshop
What if the robots take over classes? What if everyone has a personal learning path? What if school buildings no longer exist? Or what if they do? We don’t know what the future will look like. But we can learn and teach how to deal with it and how to shape it.
Are you looking for an activity for a meet-up with teachers? The Next Generation Survival kit allows teachers to explore the future of education together in a fun and inspiring way. Together, teachers make choices between uncertainties in the future, visualize visions of the future and examine what skills young people need in order to survive in the future. With the Survival kit, teachers learn to deal with uncertainty and actively look ahead, making it easier to shape the future of education. And it motivates them and gives them the agency to get started with futures thinking. At the end of the meet-up session, teachers will be given the materials they need to apply it themselves or with their colleagues in their lessons.
Teachers experience how futures thinking works and are encouraged to apply it in their own classroom.
- Become more comfortable with the uncertainty of the future of themselves and of education.
- Investigate what and how they want to teach for future-proof education.
- Learn about different futures techniques and tools.
- Get the agency to implement futures thinking in their own classroom/school in a simple way.
