Futurelab is passionate about transforming the way people learn. Tapping into the huge potential offered by digital and other technologies, they develop innovative resources and practices that support new approaches to learning for the 21st century.
The opportunities, aspirations and entitlements of young people are the focus of significant debates and policy developments. But how do these debates and policies reflect and support young people’s own interests, aspirations and ideas about what their lives should be like? Greater Expectations explores the issues that matter to young people in their lives and learning, asks how they can feel empowered and motivated to achieve their aspirations, learn about their entitlements and create change, and examines what role digital technologies can play in that process.
The three-year project will deliver a free-to-use, learner-centred resource that aims to support young people to have a voice and take action around the principles and issues important to them. To accommodate a wide range of users focusing primarily on young people aged 14-19, but secondarily involving parents, teachers, children’s professionals, policy makers and those in the technology industry, this resource will provide possible links, examples, tools and gateways that illustrate how young people can be confident, engaged and supported agents of change and how technology can enable and facilitate that to happen.
