Farid Panjwani Nicole Brown We who are teachers have to accommodate ourselves to lives as clerks and functionaries if we did not have in mind a quest for a better state of things for those we teach and for the world we share. It is simply not enough for us to reproduce the way things are. Greene 1995: 1 Education is by definition forward-looking. Its motivation, aims, content, organization, and pedagogies are shaped by perceptions of the future, which have resulted more recently in increasing consideration of the importance of imagination and its place in education. This new attention may be attributed to thinkers in different fields realizing that the responses to the opportunities and challenges in the coming decades will probably require the power of human imagination and creativity as much as the acquisition of knowledge and skills.
