Current Education System Urgently Needs More People Skills

Today, we live in a constantly evolving, innovation-driven world. While the education system does excel at shaping the minds of high-achieving and determined students, we must acknowledge a serious drawback: high school students tend to be motivated solely by grades and college applications. As a result, students are book smart and have a checklist mindset towards learning.
In the modern society, where there are no exams but fast-evolving industry standards, there is an urgent need for people skills and self-motivated learning.

Where students Iteratively improves

How might one achieve success in an ever-changing landscape of metrics?
By empowering students with the ability and autonomy to make choices, set goals, and take actions based on their own values, interests, and desires, they can navigate through any environmental changes and lead themselves towards the success they aspire to.

Where students Iteratively improves

Reflecting on strengths, weaknesses, and goals has been identified as a crucial step towards self-direction and iterative improvement, thereby paving the path to success. Effective design reflection is thus an indispensable part of future education.

Where we have shared experiences

A delicate balance is vital between individual learning and community growth. Overemphasizing personalization at the expense of shared values reduces group cohesion and hinders empathy and collaboration. Conversely, ignoring students’ personal hopes and aspirations in classroom design creates factory-like schools that neglect individual needs.

Where learning is no longer a chore

Schoolwork is often viewed as a tedious task to be checked off and forgotten. How might educators and administrators transform this essential puzzle piece into an enjoyable experience that students eagerly anticipate, rather than a burdensome chore?

Yet, barriers stand in the way of reaching a better tomorrow.

Reflection activities are perceived as tedious due to rigid essay formats and lack personalization and enjoyment.
Educational games are viewed as uncool and students feel forced to engage in them.
Due to the multitude of stakeholders and regulatory complexities involved, the education system tends to resist change.
Teachers lack support to bring about change, leaving students confined to traditional learning environments.
