Futurology

It is somewhat ironic to be behind the times with respect to the 'Beyond Current Horizons project', but I didn't realise that the paper that I wrote with Victoria Carrington for the 'Knowledge, creativity and communication' strand of this project, 'Forms of literacy' was available online yet - I came across it when I was looking for something else. It was a fun paper to write - we were given the brief to think about how literacy might change in the next 10 - 20 years. These kinds of futurology activities are notoriously innacurate but can raise points for reflection about the way in which elements of the present context may or may not shape the future. That's what I found of most interest in the Beyond Current Horizon project and I recommend reading Carey Jewitt's succinct overview of the trends outlined in the papers in the 'Knowledge, creativity and communication' strand.

We as people need to be "Futuristic",in all aspect.We need to know what's going to happen in the next 10 or 30 years ahead.The current trend of Global warming is very alarming.We need to do something,that's why we need to be environment-friendly in all aspect of life,like in fashion as well. We need to help planet Earth,to save itself.Excellent blog!Go green...
