Call for Contributors: The Many Futures of Education and Learning

 

Fast Future is asking future thinkers from around the world to submit thought pieces or full chapter proposals on how the future of learning and education might play out in the future. Our aim is to provide a diverse set of trends, new ideas, and radical perspectives on the future of learning and education at every level. Please share this Call for Contributors with anyone who you think might be interested in submitting a chapter proposal or thought piece.

 

This is an invitation for anyone that might be interested in exploring different paradigms for the future of education and learning. We encourage people from different fields of knowledge to submit their proposals. Every stage of the educational system is expected to be covered (including nursery, primary school, secondary, college, university level, corporate training, and life-long adult learning).

 

We encourage contributors with radical new ideas about the future of education to submit a short article or a whole chapter. Preference will be given to those who have both the strongest proposal and the most energy to support the promotion of the book to a global audience.
