There has been a long-running pedagogical debate over the benefits of a skills-based educational approach, as opposed to a knowledge-based education. With the huge development in technology, it is increasingly hard to predict the future of employment. But is a transversal – skills-based – education enough to help our students navigate the world beyond school? What role does knowledge play in a society where everyone has access to the internet and can google whatever they want?

Is there a ubiquity of information and scarcity of knowledge.? This panel session will explore how we as educators and parents can empower and support students to develop the necessary skills and knowledge to manage the unpredictability and uncertainties of their future.

In an era where Project-Based Learning (PBL) has become mainstream, in this talk, I propose an idea to explore the evolution beyond this framework, focusing on the innovative implementation of 'Solution Based Learning' (SBL). This methodology, deeply rooted in the extensive research and practical experience accumulated by THINK Global School (TGS) and the THINK Learning Studio, aims to provide a more comprehensive and integrated approach to interdisciplinary learning. Our proposal revolves around insights drawn from over 1,500 executed projects, illuminating the intricacies of assessment, project portfolio construction, and transcript creation.

The crux of my presentation will be the unveiling of TGS’s unique SBL model. It aligns curriculum design with real-world problem-solving skills, seamlessly integrating multiple disciplines into each student's learning experience. The benefits are two-fold: enriched student comprehension across academic fields, and a tangible demonstration of their mastery via a diversified project portfolio. We'll also delve into the innovative assessment methodologies that ensure each student's understanding and aptitude are accurately represented. By shedding light on these elements, we aim to inspire a shift towards Solution Based Learning, paving the way for a true shift in the future of education.

In today's world, where knowledge and information are readily accessible to all, it is becoming increasingly important to empower students to be the cartographer of their own pathways and pursue the lives they truly desire. The traditional approach of directing students towards predetermined career paths with standardised assessment methods is rapidly losing relevance. The focus needs to switch from asking children 'what they want to be' towards 'who they want to be' , the programmes I have been designing over the last number of years seek to address exactly this. 

 A core curriculum of study to equip students with a diverse range of skills and abilities, enabling them to develop character and navigate their own unique journeys. Embracing a blended learning approach, combining essential skills teaching with independent learning opportunities. By placing the student at the centre of their own learning process, this Core Curriculum fosters a transformative journey of self-discovery, and self - realisation helping young adults end up exactly where they aught to be.

 Students at Cranleigh who complete all the elements of the Core Curriculum not only gain additional accredited qualifications but also develop vital attributes such as critical thinking, adaptability, collaboration, confidence and tenacity. These skills are crucial for success and thriving in the modern world. The programme goes beyond conventional academic learning, nurturing confident, resilient, and mindful global citizens who are ready to shape the future according to their own aspirations.
