The articles in each category provide a quick overview of some of the trends that we are seeing in the transport sector, and allow teachers and students to gain an insight into the areas in which we will likely see innovation, deployment and opportunity over the coming decade.
As we’re reading and researching articles, anything that doesn’t fit our usual categories goes into our ‘cool and interesting’ file, and posts like this one are the result. You might like to use these as a provocation for a planned discussion or lesson, or just a random piece of knowledge that people might be interested in. Let’s begin!
In truth, no one actually knows what’s going to happen, and advocates who make predictions about the future of work (and learning) can seize pieces of information and incomplete research to make assumptions. We have to recognise our own biases, along with tendencies to assume and make connections that don’t necessarily exist.
It’s not possible to accurately predict the future, of course. However it is possible to get a sense of how things are likely to change over the coming 10 to 15 years. Today’s 5 year olds will enter the workforce from about 2032 to 2037, and as you’ll see below the working environment that they join will be dramatically different from the one we experience today. So what’s going on, and what’s likely to happen?
Today, we are exploring big futures of ideas, technology, systems and wellbeing. Some of these were written pre-Covid 19, and based on what we now observe globally these provide an interesting insight into how unexpected events can influence likely trends and outcomes identified using the evidence available when written.
We start this week by sharing one example of the development of personalised learning through the use of technology. Some argue that personalised learning through tech. (that responds to and provides for diverse student needs) is an essential next step for scaling quality learning, while others suggest that while useful, it may not be a panacea.
