Education for 2030
We live in a challenging world. We already confront equity gaps, social fragmentation and diminishing resources. We now know the questions posed by automation and gene science will be even more profound. But the future remains an open book. Tomorrow's citizens - today's students - can choose between a benign world and something much worse. Education provides their compass.
So what should young people learn for 2030? Can we find ways to nurture their innovative and ethical capacities? And can we find new approaches to assessing these capacities, at system and school level?
This keynote looks beyond the first 6 PISA cycles and reflects on curriculum and assessment in an uncertain environment, drawing on the early insights of the Future of Education and Skills: an OECD 2030 learning framework.
