TED Talk questions the relevance and value of today’s education model and whether going to University is a good/bad idea…

Jack Delosa’s TED talk “The future of education is not what it used to be” is a discussion on the need for change in the education system. He argues that traditional education, which emphasises memorisation and regurgitation of information, is no longer relevant in today’s rapidly changing world. Delosa believes that the education system should shift its focus to skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving, and creativity. He argues that these skills are more valuable in the current job market and will be even more so in the future.


Delosa also stresses the importance of personalized learning, which allows students to learn at their own pace and according to their own interests. He advocates for a model that emphasizes collaboration, project-based learning, and hands-on experience. Delosa argues that technology can play a significant role in facilitating this kind of learning, by providing access to information, connecting students with experts, and creating immersive learning experiences.


In conclusion, Delosa calls for a transformation in education, one that moves away from the traditional model and towards a more dynamic, personalized, and skills-based approach. He believes that by doing so, we can better prepare students for the challenges and opportunities of the future.


This could not be any closer to the ethos and reasoning behind the existence of BGA! Learners becoming who they are supposed to at their own pace, learning agency, autonomy and finding their path rather than following an outdated education model. Giving young people the opportunity to figure out what they are going to do, where they will fit in to the job market, what they have to offer, and how they are going to get there; offering them the space and support to help them achieve their goals is BGA’s intention.
