An Interview with Richard Halkett – Part 6 of 6

Richard Halkett, Director of Strategy, Research, and Global Education for Cisco Systems, and Alan November, Senior Partner, November Learning discuss what the next steps are for educators and educational systems. Richard states:

If we are talking about the emergence of a learning society, rather than just an education system, then we need to insure that schools are at the heart of that learning society.

Richard discusses four essential steps that need to be taken:

  2. Formalizing informal learning
  3. Reform assessment to measure 21st century skills
  4. Drive innovation and dissemination of new practices
