The topics discussed in this first issue transcend geographical boundaries and curricula, touching the lives of educators, students, and parents globally.”

While the magazine is set to continuously introduce new articles, the initial edition of INSIGHTS takes a deep dive into how families can better equip the next generation for success in our ever-evolving world. The featured articles include:

  • "In Pursuit of Happiness," which delves into the essential role of emotional well-being in the lives of young learners. It highlights the significance of emotional well-being as a potential predictor of adult well-being, possibly even more critical than academic achievement. Various experts provide insights into the importance of fostering happiness, both at home and in schools.
  • "The Fourth Education Revolution" challenges readers to consider the transformative potential of artificial intelligence in education. The article argues that AI could revolutionize education by offering personalized learning experiences, addressing issues like social inequality and student mental health, and alleviating the workload of teachers.
  • "Life in the Skills Locker" shifts the focus towards the importance of soft skills, encouraging us to look beyond traditional academic metrics. The article underscores the significance of skills such as emotional intelligence and critical thinking for future success. Schools are gradually incorporating STEAM and problem-solving projects to prepare students for a rapidly changing world.
  • "Knowledge is Power?" raises questions about the evolving role of memorization in our age of information abundance. While foundational knowledge remains essential, the emphasis is on cultivating agile learners who can apply their knowledge in real-world contexts.
  • "Social Purpose: Real World Value or Virtual Signaling?" challenges us to reassess what authentic social impact means in educational settings. Driven by the interest of Gen Z in social and environmental causes, educational institutions are offering resources for impactful student-led initiatives.

In addition to its thought-provoking articles, INSIGHTS is poised to serve as a platform for sharing the latest research findings, interviews with educational leaders, and opinion pieces that outline best practices in teaching and learning.
