During the recent Christmas holidays, I re-read an article by Professor Francisco Longo on the impact of globalisation and the digital revolution in schools and universities. For those dedicated to education and the management of its institutions, this article is a brilliant contribution to understanding the challenges we face today. We have a wonderful opportunity to help shape the educational experience of future generations of students.
I hope that education will soon reach everyone in every corner of the planet – regardless of the place or circumstances in which they were born. Technology and communication will be key elements. But the challenge goes further: our schools and universities must develop new models of learning for people facing important tasks.
