  • Why we need to rethink education

    The manifesto behind the book

    1. Moving away from the status quo

    The status quo is failing. The way we learn today is no longer efficient.

    We must use more engaging and personalized learning methods.

    2. Engaging the learners

    We have to move away from a system where learners are passive consumers of learning to a system where we engage them to the widest extent possible with the help of the right active pedagogies & tools.

    3. Putting educators at the heart of change

    Educators are the heart and soul of any system’s transformation. They should be highly valued and at the heart of any pedagogical innovation.

    4. Using research findings to facilitate evidence-based learning

    We must use research findings to improve our pedagogy, educational products and services. We now know way too much about the functioning of our brain to ignore it.

    5. Never forgetting the context

    Education is sculpted by culture, history and politics, but it is grounded in local insights, and people. There’s no copy/paste possible in order to change a system.

    6. Predicting the future (which is now.)

    The future of education in 3 key words would be 21st century skills, lifelong learning and inclusion through personalization.

    With that in mind, author Svenia Busson explored innovative education initiatives across Europe and found a great number of best practices. The first version of the book was published in 2018, the second, updated and enriched version, in 2022.

    They read it and loved it!

    "A book full of hope"

    This book offers a refreshing and optimistic peek into some of the latest education initiatives in Europe.
    As we follow the author across countries with various political and cultural backgrounds, we encounter passionate people and the projects they are leading in schools, universities, teacher training programs, startups and non-profit organizations.

    Although there is still some way to go to improve our education systems in the 21st century, here is a book that fills you with hope.

    (Amazon Review)

    "Real inspiration for entrepreneurs, teachers, parents & co."

    Not only does the author focus on the EdTech companies who are transforming behaviours pedagogically, she’s also looked at the whole system and understands the role teachers and other innovators play in genuinely moving things forward. She realises this needs to be a collective effort, and my hope is this book helps others make that realisation too.

    The book is written succinctly and with bite size stories that should inspire anyone who works across education and technology to focus on what matters most, the learner.

    (Amazon Review)

    "Inspiring and optimistic"

    This book is a breath of inspiration for those like me who are interested in 21st century education.
    It takes us to 8 very different countries to show us innovative initiatives that have real impact and that inspire us to take action.
    Svenia Busson writes in a style that is both accessible and easy-to-read, and once immersed in her book, it's hard to shake it off.
    I highly recommend it.
