This paper discusses the fact that the school curriculum needs to prepare students for the future, helping them to develop into well-informed and thoughtful citizens, able to appreciate a broad spectrum of cultural activities, from philosophy to the arts. The paper contends that the new approaches by educators make it possible for most students to develop deeper understanding of subject matter, but the challenge for educators is to discover what content is actually significant. The paper explains that content must be able to be explored through a range of processes, to enable students to deal with an increasingly complex and changing world.
From the Paper:"It is apparent that society of the future will have needs different to our own. In 1950, society was rebuilding after World War II, and computers were strictly military equipment. Today, there is nearly one computer for every child in western civilization. With the increasing likelihood that the children of today will be in the workforce in fifty years, we must teach students to be productive citizens in the future. In order to achieve this goal, we must create lifelong learners for it is impossible to predict exactly what the workforce will look like the future (Murdoch & Hornsby 1997, Drake 1993)."
