When the lesson ended, Mr Laurence asked SAM to stay behind.
"It seems that you are interested in the School of the Future," said Mr Laurence.
"Yes Sir. I find that schools are like the matrix in the Matrix Trilogy. There is a certain order to them, a certain logic that defines how schools work. They are systematic and rigid. This is not how I want the schools to be. I want the schools to be more exciting. I want school life to be fun. I want learning to be more flexible!" replied SAM.
"Besides, there are also other liabilities to the current education systems in the world. In some countries, their education system can be extremely stressful for the students because of the various tests and examinations the schools put them through. The wealth disparity among nations also determines how much resources they can actually allocate to education. For example, in some developing countries, the schools do not have adequate infrastructure and technological know-how to effectively engage their students in their learning," Mr Laurence replied.
SAM gasped. He did not know that.
"Your imagined school of future can be different from what others may imagine. Perhaps, our school can be the "future school" of some schools. To have a holistic view, you will need to first understand the current education system."
