Our foundation focuses on skills development and we help young people make a smoother transition into the labour market.
I appreciate the efforts of GILE to organise an event within the framework of the World Science Forum. The future of education is not only about the technologies. Education is still the responsibility of the student. They also have to think about how they adapt, not just the institutions.
The GILE initiative is of particular importance because it deals with the future of education systems. I think we will have a paradigm change in education, based on a number of pillars such as ethics, diversity and an interdisciplinary approach that provides flexibility.
I strongly believe that teachers have a duty to innovate. They need to teach less content and more transversal skills, such as reflective thinking, empathy, critical thinking. These are skills that robots will not be able to do and teaching them will help give future generations a meaningful life.
The newly established GiLE Journal of Skills Development (GJSD) invites authors
to submit research articles for its first issue.
