Towards Global Learning Goals
Our Tech Manifesto
In our fourth report, we set out a manifesto for how tech can help genuinely collaborative problem solving rather than just disruption, and Tom Fletcher writes an open letter to tech leaders asking for their help in stirring a 'learning reawakening'.
- “Silicon Valley is on the wrong side of a trust deficit”
- “We are within a decade of being able to see a digital library of the world’s most important knowledge, presented in accessible ways, free to the user.”
- “But we are also within a decade of younger people dropping out of school in order to learn faster.”
- “This creates a great opportunity for new business models to emerge that place social value more
consistently and explicitly at their core.”
- “And for tech companies to engage other actors on genuinely
collaborative problem solving, rather than simply disruption.”
You can also download our first report, ‘The World Needs Global Learning Goals’, where we outline the exciting conversation happening in learning, the challenges we face, and how the Towards Global Learning Goals initiative plans to work on it.
Our second report, ‘Kindling the Flame’, claims most people are learning the wrong things in the wrong way, proposes Global Learning Goals for all learners, and sets out the challenges we face to make them happen.
Our third report, ‘From Ferment to Fusion’, looks further at the challenges we set out in ‘Kindling the Flame’. We reflect on innovation and change, and we identify for each challenge a practical, coalition building, action.
