Future Class Network
Are we giving well enough education for students in 21st Century?
Yumi Jeung, Content Manager at Future Class Network
The Future Class Network(FCN) is a grassroots initiative to reform the public education system by supporting forward-thinking teachers. The current public education system, which predominantly relies on a lecture-based teaching method, a legacy of the 19th century, is failing to equip the youth with the right kinds of competencies to succeed in the 21st century. FCN try to figure out the right education solution for future.
The most essential ability required of our future generation is ‘collaborative problem-solving competency’. Children in the 21st century will face unforeseen problems as societies change rapidly and drastically. In order to be prepared, they must learn how to work together to develop appropriate solutions.
Our organization was created in 2014 by a few forward-thinking public school teachers to reform the public education system from the ground up, with the ultimate goal of turning public schools into an environment where students can develop their collaborative problem-solving competency. The solution we offer is the immediate and efficient implementation of the ‘World’s Biggest Class Project’ program in public schools by training the teachers directly and leveraging the power of an online networking platform and mass media.
FCN is practicing 2 big projects. First, FCN suggests future education solutions to educators. Keokuro Kyosil, class model enhancing communication and collaboration skill to students, and World's Biggest Class project, collaborative problem solving skills, are step-by-step solutions FCN developed and shared. And, FCN runs sensational school named 'FCN Learning Lab' where we experiments proper education model for 21st Century from 03. 2017. Day by day, 60+students and 6 teachers from public education are trying hard to reach the answer we deserve. By deep Interview and close observation and archiving, every school practicing has been documented.
Future Class Network is well known for its innovative solutions and unique approach to world's education problem. This 20,000-member-organization won the Google Impact Challenge Korea(2016), Wework Creators Award(Non-profit, 2019), and selected as a finalist in MIT SOLVE Challenge in 2018. FCN Learning Lab appointed as 'World Leading Learner' in 2017 by OECD and America Achieves.
Education should be closely linked with changing society. Future Class Network spreads the idea of what the future of education could look like, and designs a 21st century education within this philosophy.Impact
