Designing a future where learning is a lifestyle

In this step, learners will gain an insight into the theme of this course on education and will explore the course learning outcomes.

The theme of this course on education, co-designed during several workshops and conversations with 16-25 year-olds, is ‘Designing a Future where Learning is a Lifestyle’.

For too long, education has been stuck in a one-size-fits-all mentality. But there are many opportunities for change provided by technology. Over the course of the last year with the adaptations we have had to make as a result of COVID-19, we have witnessed a shift in mindset that will result in the development and adoption of some transformative learning solutions. There has never been a more exciting time to help shape the future of education.

For Samsung, a future where learning is a lifestyle is a future full of educational opportunities that don’t just increase thematic knowledge but introduce essential skills and the opportunities to apply these in the real working world. Crucially, it’s also a future where learning never stops. We recognise the power of alternative modes of learning and the need to design both tailored and inclusive educational experiences that accommodate multiple learning styles.
