Looking at the Challenges of the Future. Providing for Tomorrow's Education Today.
Olivero, James L.
The purpose of this book is to give educators new ideas about events happening now that will undoubtedly have an impact on the future and will require major modifications in educational programs. The author synthesizes what he considers salient events and factors that are likely to influence the direction education will take. Chapters 1 through 3 discuss technological advances and other factors shaping the future; chapters 4 through 6 plot strategies for nurturing sufficient personal and group interest in the topics of the future. From the strategies suggested, personal energies can be drawn on to foster action. Or a group of people may be ready to try pilot programs in their schools based on findings from their studies. In this case, the third section of the book, chapters 6 through 8, will be most helpful. Chapter 8 and the appendices call attention to readings, media materials, human resources, and school district sites where the focus is on the future. (Author/MLF)
