Keynote Conversation: The World Needs a New Curriculum

, Global Future Education Foundation, United States


Global education needs, a New Goal, a New Pedagogy, and a New sense of What is Important to Teach. The new goal, says Prensky is "becoming" rather than "learning" — becoming a good, capable, world-improving person. Learning is one means to becoming, and there is even a better means, which is real world accomplishment. That is the new pedagogy — education needs to move beyond passing on or creating "content" and beyond even "problem-based learning" to Accomplishment-Based Education, where the students spend the bulk of their time and efforts, starting in the earliest grades, solving real-world problems.
