Says Priyadeep Sinha: “The future of learning is going to be starkly different from what it is today. The advents in Artificial Intelligence and Automation will ensure outsourcing of mostly process-based work to machines. The future requires human intervention majorly in non-linear, creative and critical forms of thinking and decision making. Thus, the need of the hour is to train human capital with these prerequisites. This can only be possible through changing the prevailing education models and deliberating new practices to prepare students for future demands. ‘Unconference’ has facilitated as a stage for global educators to share their ideas, and discuss and deliberate on new education models that would create a new surge of meaningful education for all. It gives us overwhelming satisfaction that our initiative has turned into a global success and is inspiring thousands of lives. We look forward to greater collaboration among educators from across India and the world, to make a better future.”
