Manifesto

Here is what we believe about the necessity of lifelong learning for all.

wax-seal-300x230

No one should waste time and money on skills that will soon be useless. We need to learn relevant things for the future we are going into. An advertisement asks: do you think it is about mindset or skillset? The answer is: BOTH! Mindset without a skillset is useless; the separation without the mindset is directionless.

Skills for the future will be a combination of technological knowledge and the courage to think for yourself. We must dare to think something about what this future should be like, in order to be able to make active choices. It is too easy to say that "we only teach kids to code". Everyone has to learn and we have to learn more than coding. We need to teach kids and everyone else, DIGITAL CREATION. We must become something more than good consumers of new technology - we must be able to recreate it. And we adults must not tolerate so easily the learning that does not apply to ourselves.

But what are the necessary skills for the future?

Direct competition against robots is a losing battle for humans. Robots, automation and AI are all about what the machines are very good at. It is to be able to read and find patterns in large amounts of data, but to interpret these patterns correctly, a way that is also culturally and politically rooted, which reflects the extremely complex human psyche, only people can and should do. Better and cheaper robots will be able to perform most of our routine tasks that require little or no creativity. On the other hand, tasks that require flexible action in unpredictable environments, and that require empathy, people will always be better at. AI is well suited for administrative and routine tasks. People are invincible in tasks that require care and consideration. Either way, it will be exciting and require a lot of new knowledge.

Claude Shannon, the father of Information Theory, said: "We know the past but cannot control it. We control the future but cannot know it ».

Join and explore the future, so that together we can drive it in a good direction.

LØRN's 10 commandments for lifelong learning.

Your learning should be:

  1. Lifelong, not just a one-time activity for the youth
  2. Fresh, based on stories that changed in the last 12 months
  3. Local, about things that happen in your geography and that you recognize
  4. Convenient so you can use it yourself
  5. Inclusive, so that everyone can participate in the future
  6. Interdisciplinary, so you are drawn into many new necessary tools
  7. Self-driven, where you want yourself, and your employer and municipality also contribute
  8. Team-based, so you apply new learning with colleagues
  9. Digital, so you can learn in new channels in new situations
  10. Flexible, so you take in knowledge in small, light, playful pieces
