This paper explains that the rate of introduction of new technologies is increasing and changing the ways in which people communicate with others, interact with ideas to increase their knowledge base and to educate and entertain themselves; therefore, the schools must prepare students for a life of constant change and the ability to incorporate new technologies as a natural part of their play and learning. The author points out that, in addition to being prepared for the information age, particular emphasis should be given to social and environmental education, science, technology and modern languages. The paper stresses that many educational institutions are going to become more market-driven and responsive to the needs of their learners, particularly adult learners, in the coming years.

From the Paper:

"An old saying suggests that, "one person can make a difference," but curriculum development is not an individual endeavor by any measure but rather a collective experience that requires careful consideration of who is going to need to learn what and for how long and why. The same market forces, though, that Adam Smith identified will play an increasing role in shaping what curriculum developments will emerge in the coming years. If an institution of higher learning fails to provide its adult students with a relevant curriculum that is delivered in a manner that is readily accessible to them, these students will likely continue to shop around until they find a school that meets their needs; it will be in this "invisible hand" capacity that I will help to shape curriculum development over the coming 10 years."
