India aspires to become a 5 trillion-dollar economy by the year 2024. This is possible if Indians embrace and build 'Learning Power' to flourish and thrive in the Knowledge and Innovation Economy
In 1970, Alvin Toffler in his famous book 'Future Shock' had pointed out to the challenges that arise out of ‘too much change in too short a period of time’. The age of computers and Internet and the realisation of Moore's law led to what we now call the VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous) world.
The traditional model of learning was to equip the learner for a well-defined series of skills and abilities, which led to the importance of definable learning outcomes and adoption of the ISO model by several educational institutions. This must change in the present scenario where learners have to be ready for a future that will bring with it, new challenges and therefore new opportunities if the individual is ready for it.
Learning Power (a collection of psychological traits and skills that enable a person to engage effectively with a variety of learning challenges) is a phrase popularised by Prof. Guy Claxton that in simple terms means, 'knowing what to do when you have not been told what to do'. This concept was formulated a few decades back but seems to be the way forward in a VUCA world.
The 11th EDU ConvEx will include a set of 4 talks for about 18-20 minutes each and will discuss Learning Power, and elaborate on the approaches and methods of how to build the key components of Learning Power:
The conference will also touch upon the need of assessing the Learning Power in a modern, integrated, personalised, innovative and continuous manner.
