Trends Shaping Education 2019
Did you ever wonder whether education has a role to play in preparing our societies
for an age of artificial intelligence? Or what the impact of climate change might
be on our schools, families and communities?
Trends Shaping Education examines major economic, political, social and technological
trends affecting education. While the trends are robust, the questions raised in this
book are suggestive, and aim to inform strategic thinking and stimulate reflection
on the challenges facing education – and on how and whether education can influence
This book covers a rich array of topics related to globalisation, democracy, security,
ageing and modern cultures. The content for this 2019 edition has been updated and
also expanded with a wide range of new indicators. Along with the trends and their
relationship to education, the book includes a new section on future’s thinking inspired
by foresight methodologies.
This book is designed to give policy makers, researchers, educational leaders, administrators
and teachers a robust, non specialist source of international comparative trends shaping
education, whether in schools, universities or in programmes for older adults. It
will also be of interest to students and the wider public, including parents.
