OECD’s Center for Educational Research and Innovation presents this new book entitled “Back to the future of education” where it provides its results of the work on innovation in education.
There are always multiple versions of the future – some are assumptions, others hopes and fears, or even signals that something is already changing. “Back to the future of education: Four OECD Scenarios for Schooling” provides a set of scenarios on the future of schooling to support long-term strategic thinking in education. These scenarios, which build on the 2001 edition, show us that there is not a single path into the future, but many.
This volume is a companion volume to the “Trends Shaping Education” series, a triannual publication that highlights key global megatrends and their potential impact on education. While megatrends focus on patterns from the past to inspire thinking about the future, scenarios allow us to consider newly emerging patterns and possibilities.
