Summary

Predictions of possible future changes in society are made in this paper, and the role of the teacher in the future is discussed. Several broad topics are introduced and their implications for the teacher examined: (1) Social values will change with mass media a leveling agent -- how can teachers help individuals to attain personally meaningful values? (2) There will be an increasing tendency toward hedonism -- what can be done to create attitudes and skills supportive of constructive leisure? (3) With governments able to provide more physical security in the areas of shelter and food, what kind of positive motivation can be developed to create a better quality of life? (4) Bureaucracies will grow larger and perhaps less sensitive to individual needs -- how can citizenship education be developed to the point that there is clear understanding of democracy and the rights of all citizens? The paper concludes with a discussion of how the teacher can anticipate possible trends of the future and be prepared to maintain a perspective that will balance an understanding of the past with the demands of a changing society.
