Futures of Education for Rapid Global-Societal Change (Jennifer M. GIDLEY 2012)
Education today in most of the world is more suited to the nineteenth century industrial era than it is to the twenty-first century. There are three key aspects to this insight. Firstly, knowledge is evolving. The fragmentation of knowledge through specialization is widely regarded as being unsuited to the complexity of the twenty-first century by scholars and thinkers from many fields Yet education is still largely a piecemeal affair.
What do today's educators know about, and think about, these challenges? What is the role
of educational futures in these major developments? How can education transform itself to incorporate these new insights?
