A new paper, co-authored by the Dr. Charlotte Holland and published in the leading journal ‘Futures’
, offers critical insights into the potential of emerging and emergent technologies in transforming education spaces and experiences through the lens of a futures studies approach. A series of vignettes are presented which critically examine the potential of augmented reality technologies, artificial intelligence, and smart materials technologies to transform future learning experiences and learning environments across K-12 education contexts, while also challenging assumptions about, and considering influences on, these futures. The authors acknowledge the vulnerability of the developments highlighted within the vignettes to shifts and changes from a multitude of external factors including but not limited to environmental, economic, social, and political changes at local, national, and global levels.
