Trends Shaping Education 2022
Did you ever wonder what the impact of climate change will be on our educational institutions
in the next decade? What does it mean for schools that our societies are becoming
more individualistic and diverse?
Trends Shaping Education is a triennial report examining 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.
This 2022 edition covers a rich array of topics related to economic growth, living
and working, knowledge and power, identity and belonging and our physical world and
human bodies and interactions. It includes a specific focus on the impact of COVID‑19
on global trends, and new futures thinking sections inviting readers to reflect on
how the future might differ from our current expectations.
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.
