TRANSITION


HOW CAN WE THINK BEYOND TODAY
TO TRULY THRIVE TOMORROW? 

community logo.jpg

WHY?

If we were looking down at the Earth right now we would see a planet undergoing massive transition in technology, work, and society. Many are aware of the problems we face as 30-70% of jobs are impacted by automation by 2035. However not enough organisations are thinking big picture enough to allow us to fully plan for this 'post-work' future.

HOW DO WE RESPOND TO THIS? 

  > Personal welcome by founder Jonathan Nalder. 

NEW MINDSET > "To thrive today and tomorrow, learners and leaders need to know how to dream up their own jobs, solutions, teams and vocations".

NEW FRAMEWORK > Founder Jonathan Nalder and our impressive international Future-U supporter team have collaborated on a big picture map of the skills needed to dream up tomorrow.

NEW COMMUNITY > We are building a growing nexus of support for those beginning to transition and for those who are already on their way, based around the Future Literacies Framework.
Features free resources, in- person meetups and online interactions.

NEW MISSION > We have developed workshop experiences that blend the latest technology with the skills of the Future Literacies Framework and a sense of play to launch learners of any age towards thriving.

FRAMEWORK


QUESTION:

“If we were mission control and could build a framework to scaffold the next phase of work and education into a thriving future, what would would it look like?”

FRAMEWORK


QUESTION:

“If we were mission control and could build a framework to scaffold the next phase of work and education into a thriving future, what would would it look like?”

 

FUTURE LITERACIES

What are the key building blocks that can allow Education to prepare the learners and future workers tomorrow will require? What future literacies should all missions and projects include so students and workers are prepared for the future that new technologies are ushering in? What are the areas that pioneers can immediately plugging their skills into?

Jonathan and the FUTURE-U community have created a highly-evolved and collaborative continuum that links best-practice ideas about 21st century learning to address the specific meta-skills today's students and workers will need to thrive. It has been designed as a continually refined star-map of the future literacies every future student and worker will need to be able to navigate and apply if they are to thrive tomorrow.

CREATIVITY> COMMUNITY> THINKING SKILLS > PROJECT DELIVERY > STORYTELLING

CREATIVITY

Why do students start school with a creativity rating of 100% but finish with 12%, especially when its been identified as one of THE key future skills? A focus on this literacy means students and workers will be able to have the big picture ‘metanoia’ perspective they will need.

> Incorporates open play, curiosity, harnessing failure, resilience, growth mindset and reflection

THINKING AND PLANNING SKILLS 

Even the most future-shaping ideas need to be planned out, assessed, filtered and considered - this element addresses this by tapping into ‘Agile thinking’ methods that encompass Design Thinking, Problem Solving, the SAMR model, Workflows, Self-leadership and more.

COMMUNITY

Having the best solution or project are great but to truly effect the future and have a lasting impact students and workers need to know how to be a vital member of their community, AND how to have that community support them back. This literacy also covers empathy, collaboration, user-centred design, networking and the essential questions and challenge parts of CBL. 


 

PROJECT DELIVERY 

Knowing how to think beyond tomorrow is great, but this needs to be applied and practiced via real life learning experiences that also incorporate entrepreneurial opportunities so students and workers can learn how to make projects self-sustaining with a real impact on their communities.

> Incorporates Challenge Based Learning, Project delivery, business and entrepreneur skills.

STORYTELLING 

The best solutions are useless if no one knows about them. Explaining, telling stories, building a brand and sharing in ways that connect with a wider world are the vital next step once projects are up and running.
