Future Directions for Higher Education in Africa
Africa is going through a demographic boom with the continent’s population expected to double by 2050. There is a rising middle class which has different spending habits and desires. Almost all African countries are rapidly urbanizing. Many Sub-Saharan African countries are on their way to becoming middle-income countries as defined by the World Bank. As a result of the changing landscape in Africa, demand for higher education has skyrocketed. Many public school systems are poorly funded and are not able to provide quality education to their growing populations. New entrants like private universities and online programs have begun to fill the demand for higher education in Africa. Join us on June 11 for a conversation on future directions for higher education in Africa.

The Future of Universities in a Block Chain World | Diane Sieber | TEDxBoulder
Universities have been central to intellectual and creative discourse for a millennium, and yet during the last two decades, powerful economic, technological and social forces have increasingly challenged their survival. Professor Diane Sieber argues that the future of the university may look very much like its origin: decentralized, just-in-time learning with flexible curricula and outcomes-based rather than credit-hour-based credentialing. In the near future, block chain technology will allow learners to design a personalized education that constellates inexpensive online resources and experiences, and to connect directly with employers through smart contracts. Universities that can adapt quickly will weather this change; others will collapse in the face of accelerating technologies and less expensive alternatives.

Universities and the future of innovation | Ekateryna Nova | TEDxTerryTalks
Ekateryna Nova talks about how the current education system fails to reflect new research on what fosters innovation and creativity in schools. According to Nova, scientific and technological advances are driven by people with a broad range of interests – like biologists that study history or engineers that study art. However, while working on a project linking innovation economics with British Columbia’s attitudes towards multidisciplinary studies, Nova found that the current system actually hindered collaboration between disciplines rather than promote it. In her TEDx talk, Nova talks about how this attitude is not only damaging the potential for innovation, but also works in contrast to career projections of modern times – where an individual is expected to switch careers up to 7 times in their life time.

The Future of Higher Education
Universities play a vital role in our world. They prepare students to compete for high-quality jobs, drive economic growth, produce innovative and life-saving research, and nurture an enlightened and generous citizenry. However, our universities are under significant pressure. There is a perception that tuition costs are out of reach to many and students are forced to accumulate a staggering amount of debt. Technology is creating disruptive educational models that have led to increased competition. The president and the secretary of education have called for an effort to quantify the value of a college degree, including government ranking schools based upon such metrics as accelerated graduation rates, higher percentages of graduates employed, enhanced access and affordability. Distinguished university presidents from public, private and community institutions join a key Department of Education leader to discuss how these challenges are being addressed.

Drones

Our selection of videos on this month's theme: The Future of Drones.

 

Securing the future of drone journalism in Africa
Drones are easy to use, comparatively safe, affordable and offer up enormous potential for storytelling. Dickens Olewe explains some ways drones already have been used to produce important stories in Africa and highlights the importance of ensuring they can be legally used in the future. As technology evolves at a quicker pace than legislation and policy, it is time to convene thought leaders in the industry to discuss obstacles, best practices and develop use-case scenarios. Olewe helped start that process with a conference in Silicon Valley that brought together drone manufacturers, lawmakers, journalists and academics.

What will transport look like in 2040? | Inside Energy
The UK recently set out its strategy to reduce carbon emissions from transport. But what might that future might look like? Is enough being done around the world to shift to more sustainable forms of transport? And how are different parts of the world going to get there? Inside Energy talks to Andy Eastlake, managing director of the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership and Baroness Brown of Cambridge, vice-chair of the UK’s Committee on Climate Change.

 

Hyperloop: designing the future of transport?
Elon Musk hopes to revolutionise public transport with Hyperloop - a system capable of speeds of more than 1200 kilometres per hour with zero emissions.
