Education forward: moving schools into the future
EdCentral community rating

Professor Guy Claxton et al (edited by David Price, OBE)

A collection of essays from leading educators which seek to frame a new debate about education and what needs to be happening in schools to ensure children have the knowledge, skills and dispositions to thrive in the future.

The essays address issues that the authors believe really matter, such as, 'preparing our children for the test of life, not a life of tests.' Consequently, there needs to be a greater focus on qualities of mind such as perseverance, self-control, curiosity, concentration and empathy. Additionally, core skills in literacy and numeracy need to be complemented by digital literacy, oracy, problem-solving and other skills that are in demand.

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.
