About This Book

Learning, and hence education, are in turmoil. Traditional learning techniques are challenged by powerful new approaches and insights while students and employers alike put new demands on education. The new insights come from quite different areas of science.

This book aims to provide a future-oriented picture of the various developments culminating in an educated speculation on learning and education in the near future. It has been written for leaders in education, scholars as well as practitioners and policymakers.

Learning will be a central issue in the decades to come. In the words of the recently deceased cultural anthropologist Catherine Bateson: “We are not what we know but what we are willing to learn.”


“The editors, who have published major texts before, have now attacked one of the core issues that will affect humanity for the remainder of century: how we learn and how organizations learn, and subsequently the effects on this stage of human evolution as these trends converge. Core learning is pragmatic and through osmosis, not the rote methods taught during the industrial era which plagued much of our youth and continues to be the core method for young people globally. The connections and convergence argument have hitherto not been explored in such a coherent and logical manner, combined of course with the editors’ reliance on data and facts. When I read this book, it is as though I am learning anew given its wealth of facts and connections that are obvious after reading, however, had been lost on me prior to being exposed to the book. Who should read this? Educators and students globally, corporate executives, policy makers and scientists. This book is rich and melds the topics of all four constituencies in a hitherto unexplored manner.”—Mr. RehanChaudri, Executive Chairman, Altan Capital. 

“Learning is one the most seminal, yet calcified, human activity. This, daring, must-read book offers long-overdue facelift to the art of learning and its institutions. A wake-up call and a transformative read about the key to human progress for generations to come.”—Dr. Gal Luft, Director, Institute for the Analysis of Global Security.

“The book is a great read for practitioners, institutions and workforces alike that are interested in the latest developments regarding new skills as well as applications and examples of emerging technologies such as AI, AR, VR and MR. Insights from science on neuroscience and hands-on examples of how storytelling can be applied in an educational context are highly relevant for lectures and institutions seeking to participate in the digital transformation of and shape the future of education and learning.” – Dr. Roger Seiler, Head of the Mixed Reality LAB and Dept. Head of Bachelor of Business Informatics @ SML ZHAW
