Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)

Examining major trends affecting the future of education, this book from the OECD provides the background to upcoming challenges for policy makers and education providers over the next few years, looking at economic, social, demographics and technological trends and the affects they will have on education.

Aiming to providea stimulus for thinking about major trends that have the potential to influence education, and conversely, the potential of education to influence these trends, it covers globalisation; well being and lifestyle; skills and the labour market; modern families; and new technologies.

Written with the intention of giving education professionals across the world a non-specialist source for international comparison, each chapter follows a series of questions linking trends to education, from early childhood education through to tertiary education and lifelong learning. 

In listing research, EdCentral makes no judgment or recommendation as to its quality, validity or methodology and none should be inferred. Through peer ratings left by education practitioners, EdCentral’s aim is to support the development of a repository of shared knowledge and experience.
