“Education where teachers lecture a homogeneous classroom is a memory of the past.  Technology is rapidly evolving and educators must step up to transform education.  Students have access to information at their fingertips.  Instead of spending time teaching concepts that can be Googled, we should focus instead on meaningful lessons that will strengthen student soft skills including collaboration, problem solving, and critical”

“Professional development education in KSA has been on the rise for a while now, a huge factor leading to this was the increase of investments in the education sector and education experts that operate some of the international schools.”

Juab School District Superintendent

“The future of education will rest largely in our ability to meet the economic demands of our modern global society. The education system as we know it was in large part constructed for the early Industrial Age. This meant providing a factory model of education that prepared the mass majority of our students for the assembly line. We are still struggling today to break free from this antiquated model even when we know that all industry has moved ahead in the Information Age. The future of education is found in the often referenced big four: collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, and communication. The latter skill being the most critical. To attain these outcomes for students at high levels, our best chance is to build and develop highly adaptable, flexible, and nimble models focused on personalized student pathways to success. Now more than ever, our students our counting on us to provide deep enriching relationships, networks, and the learning tools to go hand in hand.”

“When I think on the future of Education, I think about movement, questions, projects and debates related to the way we are going on as a society and part of Nature. In other words, the future of Education involves the settlement of learning communities, based on competencies and impact on upcoming generations. To do so, I cannot imagine a steady state on a learning community, but lots of convective questions and possibilities that make people’s minds boil and show up brilliant, creative insights. That made me create the concept of #STEAMCulture, where all of us can rebuild new mindsets and habits, oriented to learning and improvement.”

Elementary Principal and author of “Renegade Leadership”

“The future of education belongs to the learner. I foresee a systemic pivot towards practices that promote educator agency and amplify student-voice. School accountability will no longer compete with student learning. Our tolerance for allowing hyper-testing to crowd out the preexisting talent each and every learner possesses will diminish. We will start seeing greatness in all its forms, and teaching the whole child will take on a new meaning.”

6. Eric Cantor

CEO, New Mountain Learning

“The future of education consultancy lies in creating innovative, engaging and real-world learning environments that address the gaps in college and career readiness. One example is to leverage emerging technologies to help students build the language, computer and financial literacy skills they need to succeed in whatever path they choose to take.”

Superintendent & Chief Learner

“This is the most exciting time to be a learner and to work in the field of education. While challenges of equity certainly still exist – never have the opportunities to learn, collaborate, share, create, and publish been democratized to so many. The challenge for our education systems is to adapt to this new reality. We must be flexible with our thinking around how we define things such as teaching, learning, school, and education. And, we must consciously work not to confine this new era to our past conceptions, but instead to embrace it with the same sense of curiosity and wonder we hope for in our learners.”

Mita International Brain Center


“When education looks to learner potential rather than traditional practices, it lights a focused way for all to grow wonder and curiosity. We’ll activate hidden and unused intelligences, with the question, What if every student here was a genius? Interactive and brain-friendly tools enable us to hold a crown patiently over learners’ head, while they grow into unique pinnacles where they find delightful meaning.


This depends on breaking from tools and traditions that fail to fit new neural discoveries. It opens minds to the mental possibilities within all learners, so teachers also learn at times, while students also teach at times.”

“The future of education is bright. Although there are many challenges that we are navigating, I see hope in that educators are reclaiming their voices and sharing through the power of connection. I am looking forward to seeing this increase, as the practice continues to spread and evolve.”

10. Matt Harris, Ed.D.

International Educational Technology Consultant

“The future of education will pivot from content area knowledge towards skills development and personalization of learning. We will move away from high stakes assessment that information retention to tasks and collaboration. Students will learn how to learn, where to find relevant information, and attain practical experience through long term assignments. We will no longer quiz kids on cellular biology when they are becoming accountants, rather we will give tools to complete large and complex projects.”

13. Todd Brekhus, President of myON

“The future of education is exciting. The next wave of products and solutions will move from “drill and kill” products labeled as personalized learning to what I call the “curiosity creation wave.” Future products will be exciting and innovative, have the ability to meet the needs of students with a variety of learning styles, give students the freedom to consume content in new ways, and provide supports to ensure learning is understood. I also look at a global education model where learning is tied to not only current events but historical and cultural realities as well. I am further excited by the idea of personalization of teaching. Teachers will curate innovative streams of rich teaching models personalized to their style and their students’ needs.”

Adjunct Professor/Mentor/Teacher/Author

“The future of education is empowering students to think for themselves. We have everything we need today to turn students into critical thinkers and problem-solvers who can take on the world’s toughest problems. The only change required is in our mindset. Preparing for the future is not about collaboration or paper-free or the perfect textbook or who has the best technology. It’s about recognizing the questions and knowing how to find paths to the solution.”

“We are very hopeful about the future of education!  Educators these days have such easy and abundant access to research and resources to help them with planning and daily instruction.  Teachers understand now more than ever how important it is to inspire lifelong learning and a nation of students who are thinkers and know how to solve real-world problems.  It is an exciting time to be in education!”
