The Future of School
Source: Cisco Systems
In this paper, the Cisco Internet Business Solutions Group (IBSG) describes a vision of "The future of school" in a period of dramatic change, enabled and often accelerated by powerful new tools of communication and collaboration. Key dimensions of wider education system reform include attracting and developing high-quality teachers; developing holistic curricula and associated assessment frameworks that test the ability to meet the requirements of a global, modern society and a robust economy; and creating practices and regimes that improve processes and outcomes while developing high-quality system leadership. A growing emphasis on public accountability for results and performance - across education systems and within individual schools - is an integral part of extensive, and sometimes contentious, change.
