According to the article there are five pillars which the future of education rests upon. These are: Quality, Accessibility, Customization, Affordability and Relevance.
Quality: this is one of the most important pillars as it is the base upon which the learning will take place. The subject at hand needs to be of the utmost quality so that students wil be engaged in it as much as possible.
Accessibility: This isn’t much of a problem here in Malta, but there are countries where education isn’t free so those who do not afford it can’t go and learn as others do. In many movies one hears characters mentioning a college fund so as to be able to attend when they are of age.
Customization: not all students aquire knowledge in the same manner, therefore customization should be there so that each student can learn without any problem.
Affordabbility: once again, this isn’t much of a problem in our country but others may find it very difficult for them to attend.
Relevant: what is thought in the classroom should be in line with what the students are aiming for in their future career(at university level). This prepare them for what to expect in their chosen place of work.
