What would an education system that really prepares young people for the future look like? Join us at Nesta’s flagship education conference to explore what our rapidly changing world means for the future of our education institutions, teachers and learners.
In recent years our UK education system has gone through significant reform, yet it still remains unfit for purpose. Our classrooms are equipped with little or outdated technology, and our curriculum is stuck preparing students for jobs that are facing extinction.
We want to see a curriculum that is future focused - one that teaches creativity, problem-solving, coding, collaboration and prioritises social and emotional development. Join us as we explore the trends and evidence to find out why this should be the case. Be inspired by world-leading educators and innovators who are transforming the system.
We’ll also explore how we can use evidence to make decisions about our future education system, consider the role of technology, including artificial intelligence, in solving some of the most pressing issues, and look at some of the most exciting education innovations.
Let’s all come together to think about how to change the system.
Who is the event for?
