Technology and digitalization are going to fundamentally reshape the approach to education over the coming two decades, challenging institutions, businesses, and economies to get ahead of the curve. Students will be able to increasingly take advantage of personal learning tools and have more choice, curricula will place greater emphasis on project-based field experience, and teaching will become more about mentoring and shepherding students through a jungle of information. What educational institutions and societies are already demonstrating leadership in creating student ownership of digitally integrated approaches to education? And how will such approaches impact the future of employment and economic competitiveness?
