Have you seen this video from the PLANE educators' network - A Global Transformation for Education?

They are happy for this to be shared under Creative Commons, and provide the following overview....

"The Global Transformation in Education addresses the forces of change that are causing educators globally to rethink what education for today’s students should involve. Mark Treadwell, author of The Perfect Storm, discusses the collision of three “storms” that are now rocking the world:

  1. The arrival of new technologies and a shift to the internet.
  2. Changes to how we learn.
  3. Ability for people to use their own creativity to do their own learning.

In a world where we can’t predict what what will come next, people need to become life-long learners – and teachers need to make changes in the classroom to prepare their students for this."
