Foresight on the Future of Education

  1. 1. Education 2030: Mapping the Future Results of the first stage of Russian education foresight
  2. 2. Disclaimer : This foresight is neither a forecast nor an action plan . It is a map of highly probable events and emerging trends that may occur in the foreseeable future and that should be taken into consideration in the present . Foresight is built by collective creative work of a large number of experts mapping events of the future . The foresight technology used by our group allows to consider not only linear trends , but also possible qualitative shifts in trends . However, any forecasts beyond next five years are indicative. This foresight report is largely focused on Russia. As the variety of the content and management models of different educational systems is very large , educational systems stand on different stages of development and try to solve different challenges, the application of this report to other countries is limited . However, in respect to technologies that influence education, and to markets that exist in global competition ( university education and education for adults ), conclusions of this foresight are applicable on the global scale . Important note : The list of trends and events in this foresight does not reflect the position of foresight authors and experts about the desirable future !
  3. 3. Conventionality of Key Terms We understand that entities such as ‘School’ and ‘University’ are social conventions constantly redefined in terms of age of students, structure and focus. We see these social entities as systemic solutions to ‘existential’ problems that individuals (statistically) may face at a certain age ( Erikson, 1959). In the modern society, these entities and their ‘tasks’ are (roughly) defined as below. In the future, the content and tasks of these entities may change (this foresight provides some suggestions on how this might occur). We decided to keep these names as to social solutions that may become manifested in a variety of forms. Indicative description of entities referred to in this Foresight Entity Typical age of students ‘ Existential’ solutions School 5-17 Socialization, formation of personality, etc. University 17-30 Definition of professional interests and acquisition of professional knowledge & skills, formation of individual social network, etc. Adult education 25-100+ Professional growth, redefinition of professional track, personal growth, support in personal transformation
  4. 4. Education 2030: Key results Mass-scale transformation of education within next few years is inevitable. Education will become total , continuous , human-centered , and represented by a variety of forms. Transformation of education is a growth opportunity for the business and economy , and is a tool of influence in the global market . Foresight indicates some of these emerging opportunities . The government and the society can support or block these opportunities.
