School Research Newsletter, n3 Apr 1982
"Preparedness for the future as an educational objective" is the title of a current research and development project at the Malmo (Sweden) School of Education. Some of the important tasks of the project are: (1) to inventory previous research and other activities relating to the subject; (2) to study pupils' ideas about the future; (3) to collect and analyze viewpoints from various school observers regarding current shortcomings in school preparation for the future, together with recommendations concerning improvement which schools could make; (4) to study ways in which questions related to the future are treated and can be treated in schools; and (5) to compile discussion material and catalogs of ideas for teachers and teacher trainers. Though the project is in its early stages, certain key concepts have recurred in various discussions. They include the close connection between the past, the present and the future; the diversity of alternative possibilities; the ductility of the future; interdependence; and the need for an overall approach to global problems.
