Stop cramming, start learning! Top 5 ideas for the education of tomorrow

The trends of education are constantly changing. There are many ways to learn and the world is full of knowledge. New technologies can help by creating platforms for experimental learning to be used together with traditional methods.

“In my opinion it is vital that we teach our children how to take care of our precious planet Earth. Any cleantech innovation could be used also for educational purposes. I would also recommend the schools to go out into the nature. That is where you learn it and feel it,” says Neste’s marketing specialist Ulla Kotila.

Here are some of the greatest ideas we received from Pre-order the Future audience about the Future of Learning.


1. Everyone is capable

Educate children about disabilities

What if we created a nationwide program that sends inspirational athletes with disabilities to schools, universities and youth camps to give kids a better perspective on disability. Children may sometimes have a hard time understanding disability so this would offer an effective way to tackle the problem.


2. Study the world

Educate children in developed countries

Children in developed countries should be able to travel at a young age to see how tough and challenging it is for children in less developed countries. After the eye-opening experiences there would be a way for the children to help the people they have met through caring, fund raising, corporate money and families who can afford to help. Children would then grow up with a better understanding of the world if they see it and experience it, grow up with less greed and more compassion.


3. Find your own way

A new way of teaching

The school system is often seen to lack room for creative thinkers. While children learn with all five senses they all should be stimulated in teaching. having a system that has no concept of those things leaves many falling through the cracks. While learning is also in contact with emotions children should be encouraged more to find their passion.


4. Innovation on paper

Electronic paper

By using bio plastic and solar chargers this small and low cost e-reader type technology would be used to replace school books and all your assignments could be written on it. Returning papers would happen via the cloud. This would allow for schools to use much less paper.


5. Without barriers

A universal language

What if we developed a universal language that can be understood even by those who have never spoken a word of your language. Technological invention that enables us to speak directly to each other without words – just feelings, images and sound. Music and math are two examples where the universal understanding already exists, so why couldn’t there be a third one.

    Banning zoos is a good way to teach. If one wants to learn about our precious planet it is worth going to school and having classes that teach what is really going on with wildlife and the destruction of our planet. This is one language, one hope and one endeavour.

    There is a private school in Coconut Creek, FL, called Paideia Classical Academy from grades pre-k to 12th. It is an amazing school as first of all, it is all organic on 10 acres of land. It is one of the only all organic schools in the country. Then they have a gardening class where all kids in the school learn how to plant organic vegetables and grow their own food. The lunches are all organic food. No chemicals in the school at all. The kids spend alot of time outside with the garden, gym class, sports, butterfly garden, recess, etc. There is also a playground on the school property. It is called “classical” learning. I wish every single school taught the children of today this way! My seven grandchildren attend this school and its just amazing!
