The Future of Schooling | 1.1 Introduction to Part 1

FoS Home |

On each page in this part of the materials I either:

  • provide a video clip with some suggestions for things that you should focus on (and write notes about) as you watch the video and/or
  • ask you to share your ideas about some aspect of schooling via a poll/survey.

Most of the video clips are less than four minutes long.

At times I refer to 'the workbook' - which means these materials.

As folk complete the polls I will share the results with you and you have the opportunity to discuss them.


This set of materials serves two purposes:

  • It aims to enhance your thinking about schooling
  • It is a mechanism to collect data to feed into my research on the future of schooling - if you choose to contribute to the forum discussions, fill in the polls/surveys, and/or complete the final task (in Part 3).

You can work through the materials without contributing to the forum discussions, and/or completing some or all of the polls/surveys, and/or completing the final task in Part 3 (though this will provide you with a less effective learning experience).

By contributing to the forum discussions, submitting your responses to the polls in Part 1, and/or uploading your artefact from Part 3 you are giving your informed consent for that data to be included in my research.

Any data you generate in the forum discussions, by submitting the polls/surveys in Part 1 and/or the artefact you create in Part 3 will feed into my work on the future of schooling. As such it will be analysed and may be included in research reports in a range of formats. Before the data you submit is analysed it will be anonymised. Note however, that forum posts are in the public domain - anyone can view them. Similarly, if you post your artefact (from Part 3) on the web it will potentially be visible to anyone on the Internet.

Before you go any further please fill in this form to provide some information about yourself or if you don't want to contribute to the research then just click on the 'Next Page' link below.
