FUTURE OF EDUCATION @ FUTURELAB

, ,


Michael Burton and I were invited by FutureLab to a one day event as part of their long term futures programme; Beyond Current Horizons. This research programme looks at the future of education, beyond 2025, in the context of social and technological change and investigating its implications for education. We presented some of our current and past work to highlight ways of discussing futures that would provoke ideas to help other people to think about the future more critically.

We presented our Foresight Tackling Obesities project work illustrating one way to synthesise science opinion and hypothesis into thought provoking ‘What If? ‘scenarios.

What if an education curriculum could provoke pupils to simulate their own utopian/dystopian society?
