Challenges of 21st Century

The late 20th century “economic acceleration” has created societal and environmental challenges. After years of growing income inequality, concerns about technology-driven disruptions, and rising societal discord globally, the combined health and economic shocks of 2020 have put economies into freefall.
Today it is more important than ever to access the Challenges of 21st Century, and to check how education may help to address these.

Exponential Technologies of future

The new technologies of the fourth industrial revolution, such as artificial intelligence (AI), cloud computing and robotics, are changing the way we live, learn and do business at a rate unprecedented in human history.
Let us try to understand the most important of these and also ,more importantly , strive to predict a future driven by these technologies.

Transformation required in Education of the future

Whereas all agree on the urgency and magnitude of changes required to make the education more inclusive and relevant for the future, opinions diverse on the objective ways to implement these. NEP 2020 surely earmarks a broad pathway. ‘Schools of Future’ Report of WEF and several thinktanks like Mckinsey, and PWC also have published reports on the subject.
It becomes even more vital for a country like India due to the huge share of young population and its demography.
