Futures concepts and models for big history teaching and teachers

By Joseph Voros

Abstract

The future is usually treated as an almost-unknowable blank space - a screen onto which we project our hopes and fears, our dreams and nightmares. But it is possible to approach thinking about the future in a more systematic and disciplined manner, which pays attention to past history, present change and our different ideas about the future. In this talk I'd like to introduce some models that have proven useful for thinking about the future - from the individual to the planetary level (and maybe even beyond). These models have been chosen with a view to their potential utility for classroom teaching and helping students (and teachers!) to engage positively with the future
