3 Education for a Smarter Planet: The Future of Learning IBM Global Education 2011 3 Five Signposts for the future signal significant changes for education Today’s generation of “digitally native” students TECHNOLOGY IMMERSION PERSONAL LEARNING PATHS Individualised and varied learning paths KNOWLEDGE SKILLS 21 st century skills for service-based economies Global integration of systems, resources, and cultures GLOBAL INTEGRATION ECONOMIC ALIGNMENT Education’s critical role in a 21 st century economy

4 Education for a Smarter Planet: The Future of Learning IBM Global Education 2011 4 Students of the future will be immersed in technology  Devices— Aware environments and intelligent devices enable mobile and more “natural” ways to access learning ( sensors, miniaturisation, chips in everything) What technology will students be using in the future?  Information/Databases— Filters the information overload, enables collaboration and establishes relevant context ( Personalised filters,Unlimited storage, Reusable learning objects)  Connections— The “always on” infrastructure(5.3B mobile connections,77% population), enables people to be connected anytime, anywhere, anyway (Increased bandwidth (Ultra Fast Broadband by2016), Mobile media, Global tracking technologies)  Interfaces— Engagement of all senses to develop deeper and more intuitive understanding ( Virtual reality, Voice recognition, Shared displays)  Biolinks— Biotech meets infotech to provide ultimate personalisation ( Adaptive systems, Eye-tracking interfaces, Biometrics)

5 Education for a Smarter Planet: The Future of Learning IBM Global Education 2011 5 Students and parents are demanding a more personalised educational experience. ENROLLING in concurrent programs at multiple institutions SHARING learning experiences with peers, mentors and teachers UNDERSTANDING options and alternatives for learning paths ACCESSING courses that are not available locally ENGAGING in self-directed independent learning BENEFITING from an interconnected educational team MEASURING progress against individual learning objectives PROGRESSING at a rate that recognised individual learning styles CUSTOMIZING Learning materials for unique student needs Special Programs Content Creator Teacher/ Professor Peer Learner Institution Mentor Parent Learner Emerging Traditional Content Creator Teacher Learner Professor External SME Institution

6 Education for a Smarter Planet: The Future of Learning IBM Global Education 2011 6 A services-based economy drives educational change  Services-based positions have increased 11% over the past 25 years, while industrial and agricultural jobs have decreased.  Human capital has replaced physical capital as the source of organisational value.  Employees will require lifelong educational services to maintain old skills and develop new ones to meet job requirements

7 Education for a Smarter Planet: The Future of Learning IBM Global Education 2011 7 What skills will be required of the worker of tomorrow?  Employers are looking for workers who possess 21 st century skills  Global awareness  Language learning  IT Proficiency  Problem solving  Critical thinking and analysis  Communication  Adaptable skills

8 Education for a Smarter Planet: The Future of Learning IBM Global Education 2011 8 Global Integration presents opportunities and challenges to education systems  Technology and connectivity has raised awareness of the potential for greater outcomes  Global networks introduces new competitors to traditionally stable education environments  Innovative institutions have defined unique value that they can provide to a global classroom

9 Education for a Smarter Planet: The Future of Learning IBM Global Education 2011 9 Much of the $12B in government spending recognises education‘s critical role in economic recovery  Education systems that adapt and respond accordingly are critical to successful return on those investments  Need for alignment of educational outcomes to the demands of tomorrow’s workforce  While at a public policy level, concerns about global competitiveness will compel policymakers to intensify educational accountability across the full spectrum of educational services  Need for policy changes here to support new models

15 Education for a Smarter Planet: The Future of Learning IBM Global Education 2011 15 Table of Contents Overview Signposts for the Future The Educational Continuum A View of the Future of Learning Transformative Technologies Policies and strategies

16 Education for a Smarter Planet: The Future of Learning IBM Global Education 2011 16 The Educational Continuum is enabled by emerging technologies Integration of Consumer IT devices into learning environments through standards, repositories and transformation technologies TECHNOLOGY IMMERSION PERSONAL LEARNING PATHS KNOWLEDGE SKILLS Communities are development open source standards and open source applications to allow for full interoperability, interconnection and seamless services to students. GLOBAL INTEGRATION ECONOMIC ALIGNMENT Cloud Computing delivers on the promise of “utility computing”, allowing for dynamic, low cost IT resources to be provided as required. Any Device Learning Student-Centered Processes Learning Communities Services Specialization Systemic View of Education

17 Education for a Smarter Planet: The Future of Learning IBM Global Education 2011 Open Technologies  Non monopolistic delivery of services within a common, open framework.  Provides choice, flexibility, investment security and fosters rapid innovation..  Open standards are gaining traction throughout the IT industry. Projects such as: –Apache for web platforms –Eclipse for application development –Linux for servers  Applications are becoming more open through service-oriented architectures and open-source projects, like Sakai, Kuali and Moodle.  Open systems are critical to the future of learning to enable a seamless education continuum that is centred on the student, not the institutions.

18 Education for a Smarter Planet: The Future of Learning IBM Global Education 2011 Consumer IT  Cloud computing evolution will be complemented by continued growth in the mobile technology and device market.  There is a risk in development and deployment of a coherent enterprise strategy and architecture as institutions chase the latest consumer craze.  Savvy institutions will build an open environment for their enterprise that accommodates and leverages the consumer market, but is not driven by it..

19 Education for a Smarter Planet: The Future of Learning IBM Global Education 2011 Cloud Technology  The new paradigm, dubbed “cloud computing” is really about shift toward true utility models of computing  Public clouds will offer consumer level services and can be integrated into an enterprise to provide common user services  Institutions and communities will build their own Private clouds to provide unique services to their constituents - This will produce new opportunities for education institutions and governments to create shared services across regions and systems

20 Education for a Smarter Planet: The Future of Learning IBM Global Education 2011 20 Table of Contents Overview Signposts for the Future The Educational Continuum A View of the Future of Learning Transformative Technologies Policies and strategies

21 Education for a Smarter Planet: The Future of Learning IBM Global Education 2011 21 Successful education systems in the next decade will share a number of strategic policy actions  Adopt and Promote a vision of Personalised Learning encouraging better use of data to manage and tailor learning services to individual students  Establish Student-Centric versus Institutionally- Centric Processes to provide better insights, interventions and opportunities to improve outcomes  Promote Open Standards and Open Platforms in Technology to enable a broad set of providers to contribute to a rich, diverse world of learning  Consolidate Services across Institutions and Agencies to realise the benefits of cloud computing and shared services

22 Education for a Smarter Planet: The Future of Learning IBM Global Education 2011 22 Critical Success Factors for innovation in education  Proactive and committed senior leadership  Student-centric processes and systems  Effective learning and collaboration models  Specialisation of services to differentiate education providers  A dynamic and integrated infrastructure

23 Education for a Smarter Planet: The Future of Learning IBM Global Education 2011 23 Why must we take action now? Status quo is not an option for education systems in many countries. If we wait too long to act or do not act decisively enough, our education systems will be unable to continue along the current path and, then, require immediate or forced restructuring. Both individually and collectively, today, stakeholders have the unique opportunity to embrace the emerging trends to create the educational continuum. These education systems will become assets to New Zealand and our people. They can help the individuals they serve contribute to the societal and economic health of their country and others.
