Empowerment to make positive change in the world is the key to the ideas Marc Prensky will present in a free public lecture at Ara on 2 October as part of the Tertiary ICT Conference 2018.

The lecture, Civilisation Level Change in Education, promises to be an inspiring call to action to prepare our children for a fas- changing and uncertain world.

“What’s changing is what an education is and what 'being educated' means: The world is at the beginning of a civilisation-level change in education, from the old academic approach that improves individuals, to an empowering-skills approach that directly improves their world (and individuals in the process)” says Prensky.
