The Essence of an Edufuturist

We get lots of people asking us what we’re about: this essay is our way of trying to explain it.

It’s hard to summarise what we do in 5 main points but we’ll try.

Now, let’s dive in.

#1: Positive Disruption

Netflix, Uber, Bitcoin, Waze, Amazon, Tesla — they all changed their sectors irrevocably. We think that education needs disrupting positively.

#2: Deliberate Innovation

Solar power, electric cars, oatmilk, NFTs — they all revolutionised existing practices in a way that made a difference. We think that we must check intentions in education and then innovate.

#3: Curious Curation

Finding ways to gather ideas and then share them (giving appropriate credit too — this is key) is what we do. We think that we are better when we share.

#4: Cultural Transformation

Brené Brown said, “Everyone wants transformation but no-one wants to change.” Education culture can be toxic and overbearing. We think the system needs an overhaul.

#5: Diverse Inclusion

Race, gender, sexuality, ability, access to technology — we must ensure that diversity is celebrated and that there is a space for genuine inclusion. That’s not making everyone the same. We think that education must do lots more to support difference.

And this is just the start…
