To promote future-oriented learning, we are guided by our deeply held convictions about what needs change:
Evolve from an education system towards an individualized learning environment
Individualized learning for the development of strengths and aptitudes is not a fad, but a necessity. We can no longer afford the factory model of education with its waste of potential.
Encourage eye-level relationships
Learning becomes a joint process in which learners and learning guides work together at eye level. Today, a lot of knowledge no longer has to take the form of “instruction”, and so space is created for personal relationships, participation and mistakes.
Break down knowledge silos and promote competencies
In a networked world, rigid subject teaching is becoming a relic of a bygone era. Only those equipped with the right competencies can evaluate information across subjects, make connections, draw conclusions, and find creative solutions.
Strengthen personal well-being
School is a place of social and emotional development, giving learners the skills and tools to maintain their mental and emotional well-being in an increasingly fast-paced and interconnected world.
Give learners a voice
Educational decisions must be made in a participatory manner. After all, seniority does not automatically empower people to understand the consequences of breathtaking technological progress and to anticipate future demands on today’s learners.
