Foundations of Futurology in Education.
Hostrop, Richard W., Ed.
This collection of papers represents the first in a projected series of books concerned with the future of education. Its purposes are to provide educators with insights into the thinking of futurologists, to illuminate the significance to education of their thinking, and to introduce educational practitioners to the tools used for future studies. The first section, Introducing the Future, consists of three papers discussing future shock, educating people for the communications era, and the school of the future. Part 2 deals with forecasting and specified educational futures; individual papers focus upon forecasting methods, evaluating alternative futures, planning for institutional change, speculations about the education of the future, and the future of teacher education. The final section presents conceptual views of the future, including papers on Herman Cohn, a look at the schools and communities of the future, and a consideration of the impending instructional revolution.
