New Vision for Education

(CC) Intel Free Press/FlickrThe World Economic Forum in collaboration with the Boston Consulting Group has just published the report β€œNew Vision for Education: Fostering Social and Emotional Learning through Technology.”

According to the study, to thrive in the 21st century, students need more than traditional academic learning. They must be adept at collaboration, communication and problem-solving, which are some of the skills developed through social and emotional learning (SEL).

The report assembles a list of 52 research-based digital product features that are highly correlated with the ten competencies and character qualities and identifies five nascent technology trends – wearable devices, leading-edge apps, virtual reality, advanced analytics and machine learning, and affective computing – that extend ways of fostering SEL and also offer potential for exciting new learning strategies.

The report concludes with recommendations to each stakeholder on actions to advance SEL and SEL technology adoption.
