Futurism as an Approach to Decision Making in Teacher Education.
Thomas, Donald R.; And Others
This is a collection of five essays on futurism. In the first, Thomas contends that human beings will need more than ever to be taught the basic skills of communications and that communication will have to be multilingual. In the second essay, Katz explores the notion of teaching people to think, contrasting the Deway inquiry model and the discipline model. In the third essay, Chin and Genova propose models for the reconstruction of knowledge, the process of knowledge utilization, and the place of selfhood. Rich, in the fourth essay, argues that children must learn skills to create knowledge and the arts; he also explores teaching values and ethics. Finally, Nash discusses the celebration of humanism.
