What role will "feral" versus "social" cities play in education in the year 2020? Will neighborhood schools no longer be physical spaces but rather a system that combines homeschooling, seminar classes, and community internships? For the answers, check out KnowledgeWorks Foundation's "Map of Future Forces Affecting Education." This multi-layered, interactive map explains future societal drivers like "grassroots economics" and "smart networking" and trends such as "cheap mobile devices" and "bio distress" and their combined impact on "family and community," "markets" and "institutions." Beyond education, it is simply a fascinating glimpse of the future in general.
