Dr. Chris Dede, Professor in Learning Technologies at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Education, is focused on developing new types of educational systems to meet the opportunities and challenges of the 21st century.
And as a leader in emerging technologies and policy related to educational transformation and innovation, Dr. Dede is also a central player in the Sixty-Year Curriculum (60YC) initiative, a new way of thinking about higher education that accounts for the roughly six decades that today’s students will be expected to work during their lifetimes.
In this episode of the Leading Learning Podcast, Celisa talks with Chris about the 60-Year Curriculum, why there’s a need for it, and what role learning businesses can play to support it. They also discuss the idea of “unlearning” and its potential impact on lifelong learning, as well the specific types of technologies he thinks will be most important in shaping the future of learning.
