The future is out of this world
Our lives are changing faster than ever before. Between technological leaps and scientific breakthroughs, kids will face a fundamentally different world to the one we know. They’ll take on jobs that don’t exist yet, and face challenges we’re only starting to understand. To thrive, they’ll need to develop different skills to the ones we learned in school. And they need to start now.
Education is stuck in the past
Traditional education hasn't kept pace with the speed of change. Kids learn to:
memorize, when they could learn to question
prioritize success, when they could learn through failure
copy from textbooks, when they could learn from real life
find safety in similarity, when they could celebrate difference
work alone, when they could learn to succeed together
It’s an approach that has barely changed in decades. To prepare kids for a changing world, it needs a radical rethink.
Preparing kids for 2050, not 1950
We can’t predict the future, but we know it will be full of challenges with no right answers. To navigate them, kids need to learn how to tackle complex problems, make intelligent decisions, collaborate in uncertain environments and own their outcomes.
We call these future-critical skills. Kids can’t learn them from textbooks, they develop them through practice. But traditional education doesn’t make time for it. They need a new space to learn. And a new way to practice.
How to think, not what to think
This is why, based on years of research and deep work at the best universities in the world, we have created an innovative, online learning experience where kids develop by doing these future-critical skills.
Our complex games immerse kids in different ways of thinking. While playing, kids practice important mental models, including first principles thinking, probabilistic thinking and systems thinking.
This collaborative, game-based approach prepares them for the novel situations they will face in the future, while engaging their curiosity. They learn because it’s fun. And because it’s fun, they want to learn.
It’s the experience we want for our own kids.
It’s what we promise to every student who enrols with us.
