Some Influences on Teachers and Teaching in 2030: Projections, Predictions, and a Scenario.
Newcombe, P. Judson
Predominant in a list of the problems and predictions for education in general and speech communication education in particular for tbe next 50 years are both the changing form and function of the educator. A scenario of education in 2030 includes a nationwide teacher agreement that results in the release of students from mandatory attendance at schools except for extended study sessions, teacher supervision of study sessions based on computerized placement, professional teachers' organizations evaluating and recommending commercial education packages, a three-day work week for teachers, the role of "TV teacher" as a permanent part of national educational systems, and the establishment of commercial education firms that produce packaged television programs. In addition, communication teacher education curricula include units on thought transference, a major factor in the expansion of teachers' cognitive capabilities. (AEA)
