About the Programme:
The Global Futures Curriculum (GFC) is a bespoke programme for high school students co-created by Rohan Roberts (GEMS Education) and Singularity University. The GFC provides students with the insight, conceptual framework and tools to understand, and succeed in, a rapidly changing society.
The GFC consists of twenty 2-hour modules for students aged 14-18. The programme allows students to understand the nature of exponential technologies (Genetics, Nanotech, Robotics, Quantum Computing, Augmented and Virtual Reality, 3 D printing, Brain mapping and brain scanning, Sensors etc.) and how to leverage it for their future success in a world of accelerating change.
The Global Futures Curriculum (GFC) provides students with:
Deep intellectual insight into a range of exponential technologies
Conceptual frameworks for discussing the positive and potentially negative implications of these technologies.
A “tool kit” centred around design and critical thinking approaches that will help students to make more informed career and life decisions in an era of exponential change
An appreciation of the extent to which both students can leverage exponential technologies and address some of society’s greatest challenges
