In this interview (in the link below) Robyn Boswell states that:

'To me the future focus principle has two meanings, and the first one is learning for the future - which I think is a way that most people would interpret it, but I think also what’s really important is that it’s learning about the future. We don’t think about what the future might be like, that the future is a place that we’re all going to but we’re also a part of developing what the future might look like.'

Consider this statement in your own school context. As a school, where are you at now? How can you get to a place where your students are effectively learning for the future and about the future?
