THE future will always be defined by creativity and innovation. We should nurture these traits in our children, and not move backwards by implementing a system that produces young people unable to think critically.
We need an academic evolution with a creative focus that will empower our young with the skills to use the tools of this new era of digital functions and global connectivity.
What is needed is a profound reform that places higher value on creativity to encourage students' personal development rather than emphasis on classroom disciplines.
The rise of innovation to the top of the agenda of many countries today has resulted in a profound shift in the nature of global competition.
