Future Consciousness and the School.
Bjerstedt, Ake, Ed.
"Preparedness for the Future as an Educational Objective" is the name of a research and development project in progress at the Malmo School of Education (Sweden). The project's main tasks are to: (1) inventory previous research and activities; (2) study pupils' ideas about the future; (3) collect and analyze viewpoints from various school observers regarding current shortcomings in school preparation for the future and recommendations for improvement; (4) make specific studies of the ways in which questions relating to the future are and can be treated in schools; and (5) compile discussion material and catalogs of ideas for teachers and teacher trainers. Accomplishments to date in each of these areas are discussed in the project summary. Project publications which provide further detail are listed. The last part of this publication presents some illustrative transcripts of five interviews with experts which were conducted as part of the project. (RM)
