Puttnam says AI and virtual reality must be an important part of education systems, and this shift will allow schools to make “extraordinary leaps”. To deny or resist these changes taking place would be a “terrible mistake”.
“The idea that we wouldn’t aggressively and adventurously see how this can be applied to our students (because we can) would be, to me, a terrible mistake.”
To make our schools truly future fit, Lord Puttnam said those leading schools played an important role, and that NAE was extremely fortunate as a global schools organisation to have a shared education vision it can use to inspire and empower its students.
“We’re very, very lucky in this group; we have leadership. We have to understand what’s out there and what can be done.”
“We have an opportunity to get our students to stand up for the values we try to inculcate in them, and turn what at the moment is a sad, depressed and troubled world into something much, much better.”
