Lee is President of the Global Digital Citizen Foundation.
Keynote Address 22 August 2015 – Present tense and future perfect
Summary and thank you.
Lee thank you for a fascinating, very humorous and highly polished presentation about the exponential growth of technology and what it means for the future.
As you say: “slightly disturbing”!
What I think is also disturbing is school as an information delivery system competing with many other efficient and smart information delivery systems.
Schools will win this competition only if:
- They innovate
- Allow and foster curiosity
- Are grateful for the past
- Have an eye on the future and above all
- Give themselves the freedom to dream.
Your idea of us dealing with the tyranny of the urgent while focussing on the future as a way forward, is an incredibly big, but important challenge for all of us.
