Four-Dimensional Education: The Competencies Learners Need to Succeed

“Reading Four-Dimensional Education and its focus on making education more relevant in a world which is changing exponentially, reminded me of Harold Benjamin’s timeless satire, “The Saber Tooth Curriculum”, written in 1939. It tells of a fictional prehistoric society where “Saber Tooth Tiger Scaring with fire” is still part of the curriculum” though said tiger is extinct. Fast forward to the 21st century and the accelerating pace of change driven in large measure by the learners of the 20th century who somehow learned to be adaptable, savvy, versatile, collaborative and empathetic – sometimes within formal learning frameworks, often outside. In short they made the curriculum extinct. Instead of being saber-toothed they were laser-focused. By drafting a dynamic framework for learning that adapts to and reflects success, Four-Dimensional Education will serve as a catalyst for lifelong learning and reinvention. The quality of our generational futures hinges on success.”
