Teacher networks. Today's and tomorrow's challenges and opportunities for the teaching profession

Date of Editorial Board meeting: 
Publication date: 
Friday, November 30, 2012
Abstract in English: 
Schooling is changing as much as society is changing. Except that society goes faster, and schools are traditionally slower to accept and incorporate novelties. The digital divide is now present at a new level: networked teachers vs. “the others”. In other terms, the networked teacher might sometime feel isolated in his/her school, but at the same time, has thousands of colleagues online as a sounding board.
We do not know what society will look like next year; and thinking ahead to 2025 makes your head spin. From this point of view, the effort of this book to foresee scenarios in more than 10 years’ time is amazing and stimulating. No matter how different we shall all be in 2025, one thing can be regarded as certain: we shall all be more connected. Or, rather, more networked. This book provides data, analysis, scenarios, reflections and evidence that education can change, and, to certain extent, has changed and it has become more connected.

Practising strategic foresight in government. The cases of Finland, Singapore and the European Union

Date of Editorial Board meeting: 
Publication date: 
Saturday, January 1, 2011
Abstract in English: 
The book discusses the principles of public strategic foresight, and defines the other interrelated concepts of foresight domain and strategic management. It compares the current practice of strategic foresight in Finland, Singapore and several selected European Union's countries' public decision making, and attempts to answer the questions, "What could be done to strengthen the linkage between foresight and decision making?" and "How could we develop our foresight systems to answer better the needs of public decision making?" The answers to these questions are gathered from interviews of nine international experts who represent different domains of strategic foresight.
