This book draws on over 10 years of research into digital technologies, social change and education, and on a major long-term futures project conducted for the UK government. It makes an argument for thinking differently about the futures for which education might need to prepare. Arguing that we have been working with too narrow a vision of the future, the book makes the case for recognising a set of serious emerging developments including: new relationships between humans and technology; the emergence of new intergenerational relationships; struggles over forms of knowledge and democracy; the intensification of radical economic and social inequalities. The book explores the implications of these social and technological developments for critical aspects of education, from human relationships to curriculum, to the role of schools in their communities and in relation to the market.
