Future Forces and New School

Derek Wenmoth has  recentlyposted two articles on his blog that have relevance to the area of my study.

Firstly, the reinvention of schooling in Knowsley – schools being replaced by learning centres with ‘rich tasks’ and enhanced possibilities of personalised learning. Does the very concept of school mitigate against the alignment of assessment with capability?

Secondly, the seemingly avant garde yet, in some way, strongly pragmatic map of future forces affecting education. Here the landscape of current trends and dilemmas is mapped out. Crucial for me are the aspects of schooling and the characteristics of “Generation Y” or “Millennials” (Howe and Strauss).
