Curricula

Rohan has trained and delivered various innovative programmes such as IBM Digital Nation, Microsoft Imagine Academy, and HP Life. The focus is on fostering innovation and entrepreneurship while developing 21st C skills around emerging technologies such as Cloud Computing, Cyber Security, Crypto Currencies, Artificial Intelligence, the Internet of Things (IoT), Blockchain, and more.

 

He has also designed several novel and future-focused curricula and educational programmes. These include:

 

 

The HUMAN Project 

The HUMAN Project is an invitation to wrap our minds around the big questions:  Who are we, humans? Who should we become? Where should we head next?​ What should our generation do to advance the HUMAN project? We know more. We are more connected. We can think bigger. We can dream bigger. We can mobilize at an unprecedented scale. The curriculum focuses on the existential threats facing our species and on finding our place in the grand scheme of existence and in an incomprehensibly vast universe.   

 

GEMS Honours Programme

The GEMS Honours programme is a distinctive and exclusive programme certified by GEMS Education designed to integrate the study of arts, science, and philosophy. Through cross-curricular activities, field trips, and blended learning, the curriculum prepares a select group of motivated, more-able, high-functioning students in upper high school to be leaders, critical thinkers, innovators, and inter-disciplinary problem solvers.  The programme allows for conversations to move outside the classroom, to shared experiences in museums, theatres, galleries, and also on national radio and international media and educational platforms.

 

 

The Global Futures Curriculum 

The Global Futures Curriculum (GFC) is a bespoke programme create in collaboration with Singularity University. The GFC provides students with the insight, conceptual framework and tools to understand, and succeed in, a rapidly changing society.  It provides students with deep intellectual insight into a range of exponential technologies (e.g. Artificial Intelligence, Digital Biology, Robotics, etc.) and offers a “toolkit” centred around design and critical thinking approaches.

 

 

Awecademy Programme

The Awecademy Programme is a futuristic collection of learning modules that are interdisciplinary in nature, informed by the latest research from Neuroscience and Mind-Brain Education, and cover a range of futuristic themes, including 21st Century Ethics, Future Studies, Contemporary Philosophy etc. An integral part of the programme is Shots of Awe: Deep Think, that aims to put Jason Silva's videos into an educational context. 

 

The Science of Learning Programme 

Neuroeducation is an emerging field of study that sits at the intersection between psychology, pedagogy, and neuroscience. The science of Learning programme designed by Rohan Roberts focuses on existing cognitive-science research about how students learn and connects it to practical implications for learners and educators.

 

AJUAL Space Programme - Saudi Space Commission

The Saudi Space Commission's AJYAL Space Programme, is concerned with the development of human capital in the Space Sector. The focus of the program is to explore and expand the horizons of scientific learning and research in STEM sciences and innovation, aiming at its core to enable emerging generations to become pioneers in the development and use of space technologies and applications. In 2020, Rohan was commissioned to develop 9 space-themed online workshops for the SSC. The program was in Arabic and the target audience was high school students in that kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

SHOTS OF AWE: Deep Think

Shots of Awe: Deep Think is a curriculum for older teens with curious minds and an existential bent. It allows for a deeper immersion into the ideas Jason Silva presents as he freestyles his way into the complex systems of society, technology and human existence and discusses the truth and beauty of science in a form of existential jazz.
 

 

FUTURISM

FUTURISM presented by Awecademy in collaboration with HP is an 8-part educational series designed by Rohan Roberts, that takes a techno-philosophical and techno-optimistic view of the future. The series offers new insights and new perspectives into how emerging technologies will shape our lives in the future and change human society in surprising ways.

The Age of A.I.

The Age of A.I. series takes a deep dive into various aspects of Artificial Intelligence. This techno-philosophical series explores the implications and consequences of the development of A.I. and helps prepare participants for a world where humans intelligence will increasingly start to merge with artificial intelligence.
