Exploring the Educational Future
Merritt, Elizabeth E.
Journal of Museum Education, v37 n3 p99-106 Fall 2012
Futures studies uses scenarios--stories of the future--to explore how trends and events shaping our world may play out in future decades. This article features a short scenario set in California in 2037, depicting twelve-year-old Moya and her brother mart, whose "fenced community" has opted for a system of self-directed, online learning to educate its children. This scenario, and the accompanying discussion questions, can be used to guide a conversation about how museums could fit into the future landscape of learning.
