Ever wonder what will change in the education system in the next 20 years? Iconic South African innovator Sam Paddock was a guest speaker at our Heavy Chef event at The Bird House in Johannesburg late last year. Sam covered the topic The Future of Education., speaking before former South African President Thabo Mbeki.
There is a problem with education in South Africa (and Africa). That much is patently clear. The problem is that leaders don't know how to tackle the problem - or where even to start tacking the problem. The '4th Industrial Revolution' has rendered much of the landscape unintelligible for the people in charge of education portfolios at leadership level. When faced with the challenge, the trap is to call yet another round of talks - and all that results is more talks. After listening to two stirring talks by Sam Paddock and S'onqoba Maseko, Former South African President, Thabo Mbeki, gave a fascinating, cogent and sometimes hilarious speech on the Heavy Chef stage.
