Hans van Ginkel: Education expert

“Education ought to address our world’s complexity more effectively. We are aware of and see more people; we realize that the world has become more complex. A farmer in Ghana isn’t just involved with his local market. A world order is emerging that is characterized by connectivity, change, and convergence. Our children will have to learn amid this growing complexity. That runs counter to the ideas of certain educationalists—and a lot of other people who set the tone in our society. Today’s education and media often place particular stress on simplicity.”
