Olivier Crouzet is Head of Pedagogy at ‘42’ the IT school created in 2013 which promotes an advanced training methodology, called ‘Peer-Learning’. Olivier designed this model which uses 100%-project-based methods, without any teachers, lectures, or knowledge transfers. Students debate and exchange ideas, whilst trying, sometimes failing and trying again to reach their goal whilst also evaluating their peers.
’42’ is free to students. In this spirit of social opening, Olivier Crouzet, while still evolving the pedagogical model for the school and its worldwide network, is also promoting evolution in the French education system through various conferences.
School 42 : A Different Learning Approach for an Evolving World
Along with the world, societies and the economy are all evolving at a fast pace for the last two decades. The global pandemic is accelerating these massive changes. How should we raise young generations to become happy global citizens and employees? That’s the challenge faced by all public education systems across the entire planet. What should be taught for an unknown future? In ICT, because of the visibly fast evolving technology, hardware and coding languages, the question already has several answers. 42, a coding school in Paris, brings a new pedagogical model with no teachers and no lectures, and trains students as ICT specialists to face future situations in an agile state of mind.
