The FutureWe Readiness Framework
Futures in the Classroom Today is a session about futures and foresight-thinking in the context of today’s students. The workshop provides an overview of the FutureWe Readiness Framework. It is also a big picture map of the skills needed to dream tomorrow and adapt to the future.
The stated problem is that school systems in most countries are ostensibly about preparing students for the future. However, at the current pace, the sum total of human knowledge doubles every few years. Therefore, the job of fitting what’s needed into 12 years of school has become impossible. The session’s premise is that it is much better to help students know how to adapt no matter what comes.
Focus of Futures in the Classroom Today
Jonathan Nalder founded FutureWe in 2016. The project began with the Future-U Community and in 2018 expanded to FutureWe.org. Nalder focuses on four critical missions. He pushes you to think beyond the classroom today and encourages you to “Help learners and leaders know how to dream up their jobs, vocations, and futures, together.”
Educator of 18 years and FutureWe founder, Jonathan Nalder, explores what futures thinking looks like in the classroom. The session also describes what is happening as the FutureWe Readiness Framework is being deployed in Australia right now.
