Learning on all levels is a key to prosperity around the globe. Technological developments create new ways of understanding teaching and learning processes but the digital divide between generations and global regions remains a challenge. To provide access to the world of information and give individuals the tools to have their voices heard, every country and society should invest in the design of powerful learning tools. We want to understand education as a global endeavor, by promoting digital learning infrastructure and global citizenship education.
The digital future of learning will not only be focused on the consumption of information or expansion of formal education systems, it will also provide in-depth adaptive practices that account for learners‘ level of mastery to meet their individual needs. Young and old, rich or poor, digital learning tools should help them shape their lives in a self-determined way. Our goal is to conceptualize learning as a lifelong process that can provide appropriate access, tools, and information to people from all walks of life.
New players will enter the global education market and will develop a new dynamic which can change the business models of existing education institutions. This includes user-generated, collaborative, technology-driven approaches that provide access to information, learning, and education at low to zero cost. Our aim is to create sustainable partnerships between all relevant sectors, infusing evidence-based learning with new digital approaches to ensure effective learning.
In almost every domain, there is an acceleration in available information, faster obsolescence of existing knowledge and shorter innovation cycles. To develop effective and valuable learning concepts for our digital future, organizations must welcome change and be creative. Our objective is to support and promote innovative learning concepts that dare to be different and dare to fail, all the while responsibly evaluating progress and learning outcomes to create lasting success.
