Future of Learning Group

Future of Learning Group

    The approach of the twenty-first century has brought a chorus of pronouncements that "the information society" both requires and makes possible new forms of education. We totally agree with this. But we do not agree that tardiness in translating these declarations into reality can be ascribed, as it often is, to such factors as the lack of money, technology, standards or teacher training. Obviously there is need for improvement in all of those areas. But the primary lack is something very different -; a shortage of bold, coherent, inspiring yet realistic visions of what Education could be like ten and twenty years from now.
