Uncertainty and Innovation
Robinson, Muriel
Journal of Education for Teaching: International Research and Pedagogy, v31 n4 p263-264 Nov 2005
Whatever happens in 2020, schools and teachers will be very different. The teachers in training now, and those currently teaching, need to be prepared to be flexible, to manage change, and more than that, to be agents of change. Those 18-year-olds currently entering training began school in 1991; they are truly National Curriculum babies and, the author argues, thus likely to be compliant, used to working to external constraints and relatively risk-averse. This paper takes a wider perspective and explores the question "If the future is even more uncertain than now, then how do teacher educators act now to prepare teachers to deal with an even more uncertain and changing world?" (Contains 4 endnotes.)
