Purpose-Led Business

At Tomorrow’s Education we know that learning extends beyond traditional classroom walls, and we are always supplementing our program with learning events from inspiring entrepreneurs and industry leaders, especially in the areas of Sustainability, Entrepreneurship and Tech. Our approach to learning starts with awareness of your own purpose because we believe this gives better focus and direction to learning and impact-oriented outcomes. If you don’t know why you are doing something, the motivation to do it, and do it well, will not be that strong. There is generally a trend towards talking about Purpose in work and business, and even the question of whether we enter a new age in society - moving from the Information Economy to the Purpose Economy.

The Growth Mindset

For the longest time, we have used grades to measure the success of learning. Grades generally open or close doors for us. They decide whether we can study at a highly-ranked university, whether we can enter competitive fields like medicine or law, and whether we continue on to graduate school.

The Future of Education Just Happened

Pandemic. Crisis. Recession. We are currently experiencing a shockwave across almost all sectors of the economy. Economists found that there was already a 5% decrease in GDP in Germany alone in 2020. Other countries were hit even harder. More so, the current projections of a shrinking economy are just the tip of the iceberg.

To Make a Better Tomorrow, Let’s Fix Education Today

I was the average kid. My parents didn’t push me. My friends didn’t push me. Only my grandparents said I needed to study to become successful. For me learning was without relevance: why would I need to learn history, physics or biology? It was boring. So I studied for exams, but only to pass them.

The Future of Education is in your Pocket

Online education has seen a radical boost in 2020. We embraced it as a necessity to continue learning throughout the pandemic, but most of us quickly saw the shortcomings of long and boring Zoom meetings. Certainly, anybody with kids can relate to it. After a full day of video conferencing and little if any interaction, they feel drained and far from being inspired.
