How might we update our education system from industrial age thinking to the technological age?
The world has changed and continues to change rapidly, however, our education system has not changed in hundreds of years. The research done about the education system highlights six key areas that are potentially problematic in the technology-focused world we live in today. These areas include the following: industrial age thinking, lack of autonomy, inauthentic learning methods, no room for passion, differences in how we learn, and lectures The outcomes of these six areas result in the following: lack of interest and attendance, memorization versus understanding, lack of belonging and identity, loss of critical thinking and problem-solving skills, and lack of innovation. There are also barriers that further complicate the potential to resolve these issues that include financial, systematic, and resource barriers. The system map shows the complicated connections and relationships between these outcomes, identified issues, and barriers to help visually display this wicked problem and contextualize an outdated system in our constantly evolving world.
