With up to 70% of future jobs under threat, education systems need to do more than provide digital skills. A new mindset is needed, one that helps students bypass the ‘know-what game’ that is being mastered by AI. Instead, the future belongs to those who can think, unthink and rethink well enough to make their own jobs.
This presentation will benefit everyone interested in unpacking this proposition. It will canvas the ‘Agile Thinking’ approach, the Future-u.org framework and Horizon Reports to build out discussion of where education is heading and how it can get there.

EDUCATION MATTERS. This is the common theme that has directed Jonathan’s journey from being a Learning Support Teacher willing to experiment with mobile devices to improve student outcomes, to receiving Smart Classrooms (Qld), Learning without Frontiers (UK) and NMC Henderson (USA) awards, to his previous roles as a One Laptop per Child & Indigenous Education Project Officer, Senior Educational Consultant for TAFE Queensland (Digital Learning), Apple Distinguished Educator, NMC K-12 Ambassador & NMC Horizon Report panel expert, JNXYZ Education, Slide2learn & E20 groups co-founder, Pearson presenter, HP Catalyst Fellow, and Explain Everything Advisory Board member. Jonathan has presented across Australia and internationally for Learning Without Frontiers, 21st Century Learning, Mobile Learning Experience, Slide2learn, New Media Consortium, Apple and Ulearn. His current passion is finding solutions for how education can stop failing todays learners and start re-focusing on the challenges a post-work work represent. Are you thinking about this too?
