On the 18th of March 2017 co-founder Seren Dalkiran gave a TEDx talk at TEDxSquareMile in London with the theme the ‘School of Tomorrow’ on The Role of Millennials in The Emerging Story of Our Time.
In her talk she explores whether young people are the carriers of the characteristics of a new leadership paradigm that is responsive to tackling our pressing societal challenges. She reveals preliminary insights of her global field work and cutting-edge Ph.D. research that she conducted in 117 countries.
TEDxSquareMile is the TEDx event for The City of London hosted this year at the City Of London School, next to London’s iconic Millennium Bridge and nearby St Paul’s Cathedral. The theme of ‘School of Tomorrow’ was situated in the following framework:
“Today technology gives us unprecedented access to people and knowledge. This interconnectivity makes many more things possible, but also means the world is fluid and harder to predict. When learning no longer stops at school or university, and life changes faster than you can spell curriculum, the burning question on our minds is “what is the future of education and learning?” The following questions were explored in this TEDx edition around the ‘School of Tomorrow":
►Does delivering content mean people are learning? Is education about learning about things or learning about you?
►How can education help us build better societies?
►Is technology making us smarter or just more stressed?
►What do we need to learn to be prepared for the world of work?
Dr. Seren Dalkiran’s talk was around equipping the next generation of leadership & preparing the future workforce by placing lifelong learning at the centre of the school of tomorrow. Seren reflects on the emerging story of her generation, the so-called Millennial Generation.
