The transformation of an outdated education system
In this TEDxCasey 2019 talk Nicki and her speaking partner Jakem Lippis talk about what lifeskills are and why they need to be an integral part of education in schools.
They believe that the education system as we know it is not fit for purpose as it was created in the 1800’s to train people to work in industrial based occupations.
Additionally, the system places too much pressure on its students creating more mental and emotional health and wellbeing issues.
The world is moving forward, and this education system is holding us back. It is up to us all to advance it.
This talk was given at a TEDxCasey 2019.
