In a world that changes at an unprecedented pace, it is important that young people, even in Secondary schools, learn how to be an active part in the process. This module is not about predicting a future world, but it is about being introduced to some of the tools that will help them create their future and dreamworld. How will their preferred future be, what will it look like?
The ability to project oneself into a future landscape is a critical aspect for studying and practising the science of foresight. (Woodgate, 2018)
PresentPastFuture will use a simplified four-stage process adapted from The Futures Labs six-stage process. One of the key elements in this module is to avoid a mindset where the pupils simply see the future as a continuation of the past. PresentPastFuture will provide the pupils with alternative thinking methods that will help them navigate and create the future.
