Designing Educational Futures: An Application of Comparative Futurology to Education.
Clatworthy, F. James
Prediction is made of a change in the role of the teacher from dispenser of knowledge to a learning facilitator and an "anticipatory design science" specialist. A description is given of a workshop seminar focusing on the process of designing educational futures so that teachers can gain direct experience with policy study and formation. This workshop, "Designing Educational Futures," was developed to involve the individual in a series of exercises in which their task is to identify problems, critique the problem situations, formulate questions around the problems, select a single question, and formulate a policy design out of their investigation into the problem. Included in this paper is the series of 11 worksheets used in the described seminar. (JD)
