Trends Shaping Education 2016. Centre for Educational Research and Innovation
OECD Publishing
Did you ever wonder if education has a role to play in stemming the obesity epidemic sweeping across all OECD countries? Or what the impact of increasing urbanisation might be on our schools, families, and communities? Or whether new technologies really are fundamentally changing the way our children think and learn? "Trends Shaping Education" examines major trends affecting the future of education and sets the background on upcoming challenges for policy makers and education providers alike. This work does not give conclusive answers: it is not an analytical report nor is it a statistical compendium, and it is certainly not a statement of OECD policy on these different developments. It is instead a stimulus for thinking about major tendencies that have the potential to influence education, and conversely, the potential of education to influence these trends. The following contents are included: (1) Foreword; (2) Executive summary; (3) Overview: The impact of trends on the future of education; (4) Globalisation; (5) The future of the nation state; (6) Are cities the new countries?; (7) Family matters; and (8) A brave new world. [For the previous edition, published in 2013, "Trends Shaping Education 2013. Centre for Educational Research and Innovation," see ED539023.]
