April 14, 2009

By Flinn Foundation

Forecast KnowledgeWorks Foundation invites you to explore its new 2020 Forecast: Creating the Future of Learning.  Please also join us and others online in exploring key forces of change that will shape the landscape of learning over the next decade. http://www.futureofed.org/?utm_source=2020+Forecast+-+RECEIVED&utm_campaign=ac2994d165-2020_Forecast_Launch_RECEIVED_PRINT_COPY&utm_medium=email

The 2020 Forecast highlights how we are moving toward a culture of creation and innovation.  To be successful in tomorrow’s new economy, today’s students will have to be able to learn and adapt quickly and frequently.  For this reason, we at KnowledgeWorks are working to transform education in the US from a world of schooling to a world of learning.  This world calls not for better schools, but for entirely new kinds of learning environments.  To be successful in it, tomorrow’s learners will not just need better teachers; they will need guides who take on fundamentally different roles.

We hope that you will join us in using the 2020 Forecast to support your visioning and strategic planning and in spreading the word to others.
