Summary

Recent technological advances have resulted in sharp breaks with all previous human experience. The realization that unbridled scientific growth and technological innovation are no longer self-evident goals opens the way for young people starting their careers to decide the future form of their social lives. It is only through controlled change and inventive technology that man can cope with the problems of the future. The effects of technological advance are not inherent in technology itself but depend on what man will do with technology. There is ample evidence of the need for the individual to possess the capacity to adapt quickly to a changing world and it is here that the impact of education must be felt. In our changing society, it is highly unlikely that education will ever again be considered terminal at any given point or level. Skills that are learned today will, too soon, become obsolete in the rapidly changing future. Lifelong learning appears to be the only hope we have of mastering our advancing technology. (Author/SA)
