hi my name’s Barry Cooper I’m deputy
head here at Brighton college do you by
for more educational videos please
subscribe if you have any ideas or
thoughts and please leave them in the
comment section below thank you very
much so I want to talk to you today
about education in 2014 or rather
education for 2014 our children here at
school are going to be going into the
world of work and into University in the
late 2030 to early 2014 we need to
prepare them for that journey now we can
talk about technology but the technology
in 2040 is 20 years away and it’s going
to be as different from now as the brick
of a mobile phone I used to carry is
from my iPhone so instead what we need
to do in school is we need to focus on a
key skill and for me it’s the most
important skill that they’re going to
learn and that’s communication three
languages is a must in any good school
being conversing in those when you leave
but on top of that you need to be able
to take your ideas and transform and
translate them for people around the
world and that means communicating
mathematically scientifically
emotionally physically dramatically
artistically all of these aspects are
vital for our young people as they go
into the challenges they’ll face when
they leave school and head out into a
world we today can’t really even begin
to imagine
so in conclusion for me it’s all about
communication good luck with your
2020欧洲杯体育官网 learning journeys and I wish you well
