The West’s learning industry urged to experience a ‘Sputnik effect’

Fifty years ago, President Kennedy issued a wake-up call to Americans over the Space Race. Today, the publishing and IT industries in western economies need a similar, urgent call to improve western workforces’ skills and renovate their old, outdated educational establishment.

Fabrizio Cardinali outlines what he calls ‘the Sputnik Effect’ for the contemporary learning industry.

He also suggests lessons that can be learned from the Florentine Renaissance and outlines the forces which combined to create a perfect ’knowledge storm’ in those days. He hopes that a Renaissance 2.0 could hit Europe and help it to compete successfully in global workforce markets and in today’s Knowledge Society.
