“The idea of life-long learning is nothing new. But in a world that has become much more non-linear, the conditions for lifelong learning have changed significantly since the concept was first introduced. The need for lifelong learning to enable individuals to access learning opportunities – in different ways, for different purposes and at various career stages – has never been greater. We need to build education models that reflect this change and a culture that promotes it.”

Simon Fuglsang Østergaard and Adam Graafland Nordlund for the World Economic Forum, “The 4 biggest challenges to our higher education model – and what to do about them”

The Shiminly Methodology

The Shiminly curriculum and methodology are based on researched approaches and recommendations from experienced world tutors and leading institutions which address the need for evolution in the current education system. Interactive, authentic learning experiences that offer practical applications for real challenges give students the best chance at success. We understand the importance of and teach skills such as empathy, self-reliance, and the ability to see things from different perspectives.

We’ve collected articles from education experts around the world that we think best match the Shiminly mission. We encourage you to explore our resource library and learn more about what the future holds for education!

“How higher education can adapt to the future of work” by Farnam Jahanian for WEF

“There is an undeniable need to train the next generation in emerging digital competencies and to be fluent in designing, developing or employing technology responsibly. At the same time, 21st-century students must learn how to approach problems from many perspectives, cultivate and exploit creativity, engage in complex communication, and leverage critical thinking. With a future of work that is constantly evolving, these non-automatable “human” skills are foundational, and will only increase in value as automation becomes more mainstream.”

“The 4 biggest challenges to our higher education model – and what to do about them” by Simon Fuglsang Østergaardand Adam Graafland Nordlund for the WEF

“One-size-fits-all in education will soon be a thing of the past and individual learning paths will arguably be less defined by traditional educational structures. Consequently, students increasingly adopt a consumer’s mindset and shop for flexible, seamless and personalized educational experiences. They look at an increasingly diverse array of education providers to fulfill their demands and will exercise choice by going elsewhere if their expectations are not met – as is the case in most aspects of their lives.”

The Glossary of Education Reform- 21st Century Skills

“Schools need to adapt and develop new ways of teaching and learning that reflect a changing world. The purpose of school should be to prepare students for success after graduation, and therefore schools need to prioritize the knowledge and skills that will be in the greatest demand, such as those skills deemed to be most important by college professors and employers. Only teaching students to perform well in school or on a test is no longer sufficient.”
