An Introductory Annotated Bibliography on (1) Societal Futures, (2) Educational Futures, (3) Educational Alternatives and Change.
Important works by over 100 authors are cited in this annotated bibliography of works relating to our changing world and changes in the education that world will need. The bibliography is divided into three sections. The first section discusses works that analyze the nature of social change and the challenges offered by change, and predict results of change. Works by 75 authors are considered and an additional 50 authors writing on social change are listed. The bibliography notes that the references cited merely touch the surface and that grasping the full implications of change will require investigating a broad spectrum of subjects. The second section of the bibliography focuses on the future of education in particular. Over 50 works by 31 authors are annotated and several additional works are cited without annotations. The third section lists works specifically concerned with the nature of educational change. Works by 16 authors are annotated and over 60 additional authors worth reading on the subject are listed. The bibliography is intended only as an introduction to the topic of futures. Most of the works cited are identified as good sources of recommendations for further reading. (PGD)
