Forecast 5.0—The Future of Learning: Navigating the Future of Learning

The learner-centered movement is forward-looking. It sees the abundance of possibilities today to build an education system that serves all young learners.

In that effort, the folks at KnowledgeWorks have produced Forecast 5.0, their fifth forecast for the future of learning. Assessing the opportunities and roadblocks of today and projecting ten years into the future, the Strategic Foresight team sees “a new era is unfolding in which exponential advances in digital technologies are causing us to reevaluate our relationships with one another, with our institutions and with ourselves.” This insight reveals an intriguing landscape where education leaders will need to remain present to the significance of things like Automated Choice, Civic Superpowers, Accelerating Brains, Toxic Narratives, and Remaking Geographies. If any of those topics spark your interest, be sure to explore Forecast 5.0.
