As I write this the year 2019 is on its last
legshours. The year 2020 is on its way, and it’s still impossible to hear that date and not get a science fictional buzz off of it.
To honor this moment I decided not to do a roundup of the past year or decade. Usually these are backward-looking (by definition) and are really just tentative stabs at nostalgia, as I grumped on Twitter. They seem the opposite of my futures approach, which uses the recent past to help inform forecasts.
Now, for my Patreon supporters, I did post a three-part trends summary in aid of extrapolating forward. (You can join them!) But here on this blog I’d like to do something different. I’d like to open up the comments box for you to share your thoughts:
What do you anticipate for 2020?
I’m thinking of what you see for education in 2020, but you can also speak to your own life beyond education, or the world as a whole. Let us know!
PS: happy new year to all of my readers!
