Curriculum 2000: Futures Basics.
Buchen, Irving H.
A changed curriculum will be necessary for education in the future. Current social and demographic trends emphasize the need for futures studies and systems dynamics. Educational personnel must be aware of and understand social trends of increased information generation, numerical literacy, the growing importance of and dependence on machines, and the increase of complexity in institutions and systems. Education in and for the future must cover the present and future status of these trends. Reading, writing, and computation skills must be supplemented by skills students will need for the future.
