Sometimes I wonder if we as people, are learning in the same way as we did 20years ago and whether we will be learning the same way as 2015 come 20 years to come. If the answer is ‘yes’, there should be something wrong in how we learn as people. Largely because of fast changing environments we live in, high uncertainties, globalization and technology.
If anyone agrees with me, then how educators teach from primary to tertiary levels should change as well. This may require more and different kinds of investments in financial, physical and human resources, especially in developing country like mine, South Africa. A radical change in focus and priorities is needed soon rather than later.
