Images of the Future and Their Educational Significance.
Plante, Jake A.
This paper examines future time perspective in relation to its influence on the present and on learning. Images of the future are culturally and socially created from past experience and knowledge, present circumstances, and views of future events which are believed to be possible. These future images are an integral part of our network of values and notions about life and reality just as the images of ourselves that we project into the future form a basic component of our present self-image. Since the velocity and impact of change has increased to the point that past-orientation has become inadequate for solving the problems of today, future studies education, with its anticipatory process skills, can help students gain an understanding of the external forces that influence their lives. Also included are guidelines for the evaluation of future imaging, a sample questionnaire designed to compile data for evaluating future imaging and its effects on learning, and a list of skills developed by future studies education.
