Thursday 24 September 2020

Technological and political transformations have impacted the world of work, disrupting the traditional bonds between companies and workers and also the worker's own relationship with their activities. Revolution brings changes that affect the entire social fabric, both because of the advancement of the internet of things, which tends to automate different activities, and because of the displacement of the place of work in everyday life. The so-called “uberization” is one of the current characteristics of the relations between the worker and the companies, which defy the laws around the world. 

What does this mean for the futures of education? Learn more about the discussion that was co-organized with UNESCO Brasília, the UNESCO Regional Bureau for Education in Latin America and the Caribbean, and Fundación Santillana:

 

Thursday 10 September 2020

According to international indicators, Brazil from 2011 to 2016 reached the tenth position in global scientific production, among more than 190 countries. With the expansion of opportunities for access to higher education, different segments of the Brazilian population reached the highest levels of training academic as indigenous researchers, and black and black intellectuals from diverse social backgrounds.

Yet, recently, Brazilian research faces difficulties resulting from the cut of resources, scholarships and the closure of programs. Just over a year ago, ten ex-ministers from the area expressed “deep concern at the threats with respect to Education. The drastic budget cuts are worsening, which could lead to a step backwards without parallel in the history of Brazilian Science, an essential and critical area, both for economic and social development and for national sovereignty ”.

Four members of the International Commission on the Futures of Education took part in the discussion with the audience: Arjun Appadurai, Professor, New York University, and Hertie School (Germany); Fernando M.
