Teachers, Technology and Training: Future-Point Learning

International Journal of Instructional Media Volume 33, Number 2, ISSN 0092-1815


With all the predictions of rapid and continuing change, it is curious that so many schools around the world have adopted standards-based reform models to capture the precise knowledge and skills that children must know and perform to be successful in the future. With the pace of change accelerating, much of this knowledge will be outdated and many of these skills will soon be obsolete. In order to accommodate such rapid change in the schools, the author suggests that schools consider incorporating future-point learning into their design considerations. Here, the author describes future-point learning and discusses three areas from the perspective of future-point learning: (1) technology integration; (2) on-demand learning; and (3) professional certification/professional development.
