The Future of Education


My child is three years old, and he is already designing robots on his iPad, and manufacturing them using his 3D-printer. He has learned how to read and write from the computer (both in Hebrew and in English), and I'm pretty confident he's already planning to replace me with a robot in the not-so-far-away-future.


Does that mean we have no need for teachers anymore?


Under the five-twenty-five model, I propose five new types of teachers that we'll see dominating the educational arena by the year 2025, and none of them is completely computerized - although they all have to use technologies to leverage their skills and talent. The scientific teacher, the leveraged teacher, the playing teacher, the projecting teacher, and most importantly - the human teacher. 


This lecture is vital, and has proved immensely meaningful, to anyone who is concerned about the future of education. Whether you're a teacher, a kindergarden supervisor, an academic professor or a parent - you'll find yourself uplifted by the potential of tomorrow's education, and hopefully look for ways to bring that future to the present.

Are robots going to take over your job? Probably, if you don't think forward and prepare in advance. In this lecture you'll find out what our children are going to be doing for a living, which professions have a good chance to survive – and which don't – and how we should all start thinking about a world in which we don't have to work... at all.

The Future Organization


Exponential organizations are those that grow ten times more rapidly than others, and disrupt everything in their path. Come learn what differentiates the exponential organizations from traditional ones, and how you can transform your own organization from within!
