    from above report…
    “All the research into innovation in industry and commerce suggests that having
    a superfluity of ideas is essential for growth and development – education is no different. We need to have a surplus of potential ideas, visions and plans so that we have a range of strategies to draw on when we face the serious educational challenges that social, economic and technical change presents us with. Not all ideas will become a reality, not all ideas will survive in the form in which they were first presented, but what cannot be denied is that education, and educators,need to know that there is scope to dream; to think about new approaches and different ways of doing things; to know that the ways we do things now will not be always and forever the same.

    It is in this spirit that we publish these ideas. They are experimental and
    exploratory, both in their arguments and in the forms in which we publish –
    they don’t all look the same, feel the same, say the same thing. They do not all rely on text to make their arguments (in this publication for example, we are exploring rapid creative responses by visual artists to generate new ideas). They all, however, attempt to open up a new area for debate and for action,and we look forward to hearing from you and working with you to determine their fate.” (by Keri Facer, Research Director,Futurelab)
