The future of education will be personalized

The greatest achievement of the educational systems of the twentieth century was to ensure access to school to almost every children in school age. It was certainly a major success in the context of the huge inequalities and exclusions that our societies maintain. Education, understood as a right of individuals and a society need, is a great legacy for the century in which we are.

However, it is insufficient to ensure a legacy of educational quality. The XXI century calls for the development of new skills and competencies in its members, that industrially organized schools are unable to offer. In most parts of the world, educational outcomes show this gap, and achieve the expected results in the XXI century requires to change our paradigms.
