I’ve just put links to two clips of this short video from 1996 on the Futures in Education page, along with an introduction and paper that tells the story in a little more detail. Briefly, I was involved in designing and implementing a new upper secondary school subject called Futures – Personal, Social, Global. The subject was successfully trialled in a number of Queensland schools and the early evaluations were positive. But then the Board of Senior Secondary School Studies (BSSSS) was reorganised and, somewhere in the shuffle, the new subject was abandoned.
I invite you to look at the clips, read the short paper and arrive at your own conclusions.
