Leading international schools provider Nord Anglia Education today announced the launch of its groundbreaking new education magazine called INSIGHTS.

The new publication offers a comprehensive look into hot-topic aspects of global education, tackling topics from emotional health in young people to the role of technology, artificial intelligence in learning, and what the future of education and wellbeing could look like.

 

Lord David Puttnam, Chairman, Nord Anglia’s Education Advisory Board said: “We're proud to unveil the first edition of INSIGHTS, which is filled with informative articles and expert opinions. Our mission is to shed light on the complexities of modern education as we all strive to prepare the next generation for a rapidly changing world’.

 

Michael Henderson, Executive Principal, from British International School of Chicago, South Loop said: “">I first became aware of this magazine back in late September at our global Senior Leadership Conference and was hugely impressed by the thought-provoking content and opinions offered by the contributors. The articles cover topics such as:>Can children learn how to be happy? And if they can, will it make a difference? Do children need knowledge anymore when everything's a click or a swipe away with AI? Does learning about 'making a difference' (as in social impact) actually make any difference?

 

As a Computer Science graduate (with a specialism in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics) it never ceases to amaze me just how quickly AI technology has developed, and I found Sir Anthony Seldon's 'The Fourth Education Revolution' article particularly thought-provoking. I invite you to read, reflect, and share INSIGHTS
