Have you ever been asked, “How are you tomorrow?” Probably not. However, as an education innovator, have you ever wondered, “Are today’s youth being prepared to understand and design solutions to the world’s ever-changing problems – creatively? Is my organization well-equipped to leverage the energy and collaborative talents the Millennials bring? What are the new roles that will emerge in teaching and learning?” Because you are an integral part of the education landscape, we want to help you prepare for these and other concerns of the future.
In 2006, we released the Map of Future Forces Affecting Education. The broad theme of that map was the impact on learning of new forms of participation. It spurred many discussions, presentations, and connections for you. In January, we are releasing a new forecast map that reflects evolving trends in the world of education. Participation has advanced to such a level that the focus of the 2009 Map is on remaking learning to meet the needs of local and global communities.
Because you’re a subscriber or visitor to our blog, we’d like to offer you a sneak preview of what’s coming. Each month, we will share some of the new impact areas and trends with you, and each month, we will ask for your feedback. We hope you’ll tell us what you really think and feel about the Future of Education!
