Building a better social mobility It is clear from global research by KidZania and OECD that social mobility is a mixed success story at best, with experiences outside school influencing individual children’s progress. As a result, we need to differentiate clearly between schooling and children being taught on the one hand and education, experiences and learning by doing on the other. In our future thinking we must purposefully connect these two aspects in order for our children to make sense of the world, find purpose in schooling and for curiosity, inspiration and aspiration to be meaningful contributors to the social mobility agenda. In this we need to define more clearly the contributions that can be made by technology. We also have to address the question: who are the teachers?  Leadership Summit
