Mapping Education's Future

You can imagine my excitement when I came across the Map of Future Forces Affecting Education from KnowledgeWorks Foundation and the Institute for the Future. Three of my favourite topics - maps, education and the future - in one location!

Seriously though, this is a brilliant example of clear thinking about a hugely important topic communicated using the best of the web's tools. Unlike the increasingly embarrassing effort at a debate about third level fees in our own country ...

Here's a guide to using the Map of the Future - I urge you to have a look and to play with the tools they make available:
