Publication Details Click to collapse Cite/Export


  • A teacher with three heads and teacher who can be switched off - just two ideas of what the future might hold from KS1 and KS2 pupils at Robin Hood Primary in Birmingham. With experts predicting that education is facing the biggest transformation since the 19th century, the pupils are asked to come up with their own predictions in two cross-curricular lessons on the theme of teaching and teachers in the future. Imaginations are let loose, as Year 2 teacher Paul Smith's pupils concentrate on what a teacher might look like in the future. It also makes them think about how the role of the teacher has changed over the decades. Heather Rowland's Year 4 lesson also looks at the shape of classrooms and developments in technologies. 3D printers are already a reality, so who says there won't be invisibility machines in years to come? Education consultant and former science teacher Matthew Tosh is on hand to offer advice and comments on the lessons.
