Transforming Schools for the Future? A Collection of Provocation Papers

Futurelab

01 January 2009

The report on the Building Schools for the Future programme made by the House of Commons Select Committee raises a series of issues and challenges. This paper focuses on the need to specify what education in the 21st century should be like and, moreover, how new technologies can act as a driver for transformational change. This requires greater attention to the nature of personalisation and the processes through which all stakeholders can engage with the development of their own learning futures.
