THE EDUCATION CRISIS AND HOMO ZAPPIENS
The paper addresses the educational model of today and the generation of today’s youth in an antithetical treatment. The former has been inspired by the 18th century Prussian model, which aimed at producing disciplined individuals, whereas today’s generation of youth is full of enthusiasm, free and creative. Face to face, the two contradicting situations trigger a crisis – the education crisis. The authors highlight institutions that have renewed the innovation area - the Olin School, Media Lab, the University of Waterloo, the Finnish model, Rite Solutions, Blue School, 2.0 School. To disregard the experience of these institutions would equally lose the bet with today’s education, but especially with that one of tomorrow.
