From Dinosaur Egg Museums to Open-Source Learning Apps

For children learning how they can make an impact on the world or for adults who want to better create their own impact, the 2016 education trends show the importance of gaining new skills and knowledge no matter one's age. After all, our 2017 Trend Report makes it clear that things are constantly changing, and education is the only way to keep up.

For kids, educators are increasingly focusing on teaching the basics of coding at an early age. Whereas coding not long ago was a niche option in schools and extracurricular programs, the 'Glicode' Pocky-themed coding game and the 'Kode with Klossy' camp show how important those skills have become for success today.

Of course, adults can stand to gain from education as well. Social good campaigns frequently work to change societal impressions around important issues. Emma Watson's HeforShe organization, for instance, has been working to get thorough sexual assault briefings into universities around the world.
