What is World Schooling?
World schooling is an educational approach that combines travel and real-world experiences as a primary means of learning.
World schooling is characterized by the following principles:
1. Travel-Centric Learning: World schooling emphasises the use of travel as a way to expose children to different cultures, languages, histories, and environments. Travel experiences become the foundation for education rather than traditional classroom settings.
2. Self-Directed & Experiental Learning: In many world schooling approaches, children are encouraged to take an active role in their education. They can choose topics of interest and pursue learning with guidance from their teachers or independently. Learning occurs through hands-on experiences and children gain practical knowledge and skills through the travel experiences.
3. Cultural Immersion: Beyond academic subjects, world schooling emphasizes cultural immersion, allowing children to learn about and appreciate the customs, traditions, and lifestyles of different communities.
It’s important to note that world schooling can take various forms and the extent of travel and educational structure can vary widely. Some families may incorporate world schooling into a broader homeschooling framework, while others may adopt a more nomadic lifestyle.
Why is World Schooling increasingly important (to prepare your child to work in an economy that would deeply incorporate Artificial Intelligence technologies)?
1. Adaptability and Entrepreneurship: As AI technologies continuously evolve, working professionals would have to be flexible and adaptable to keep up with industry changes. World-schooled children tend to be more adaptable as constant changes in their environments have instilled in them the ability to embrace transitions. Also, world-schooled children can help to foster an entrepreneurial mindset, as they learn to adapt and innovate in new environments. This can be advantageous in pursuing entrepreneurial ventures in AI-driven industries.
2. Global Networking: World-schooled children often develop cultural intelligence, enabling them to navigate cross-cultural interactions and communicate effectively with people from various parts of the world. World schooling could also provide opportunities for the children and families to create a global network of contacts and social capital. Building relationships with people from different backgrounds can facilitate international business opportunities and collaborations in AI-related sectors.
3. Resilience: Traveling and experiencing different situations can build resilience in children. This quality is valuable in facing the challenges and uncertainties that may arise in an economy shaped by AI disruptions.
