Education in liquid modernity: educate and forming in an uncertain world
Keywords:liquid modernity, liquid education, educational challenges
AbstractPurpose: This paper aims to reflect on the educational and formative issues in liquid modernity, characterized by fluidity, ephemeral relationships, and the constant obsolescence of knowledge and competencies. Methodology/Approach: The research conducted is based on bibliographic research and narrative, supported by documents from the author of liquid modernity, authors who have already reflected on the subject, and international organizations, which guide us to future educational scenarios. Findings: The metaphor of education in liquid modernity takes Bauman's sociological perspective. If there is a modern liquid society, there is a need to create a liquid education, capable of responding to the challenges of this society. This new social context, as opposed to the stable world of the previous solid modernity, implies an uncertain world. Research Limitation/implication: We live in a time of unpredictable but constant transformation in a global society supported by digital technologies, where the challenges of education and training are increased. It is intended to raise awareness of the new challenges as well as the need to adapt the education and training systems. Originality/Value of paper: The metaphor of liquid modernity allows characterizing today's society. The well-known digital society can be deepened and better contextualized through liquid modernity.
