    DESIGNING

    THE

    FUTURE

    3/20

    People have always been intrigued of what the future will looklike. Predicting the future is important for two reasons; first, weneed to start thinking about what kind of future we would like forourselves and to pass on to the next generation, and then, we needto know what decisions we need to make today that will give the

    best result in the future.

    It might be possible in the future to experience the sandbetween your toes, feel the salt from the ocean on your lips, hearthe waves and smell the seaweed, just lying in your bed at home.But we will not be able to fool the mind in the way that no matterhow real the experience will feel, you will always know that ithasnthappened for real. That will make all the difference. You can

    tell people today that you have seen the pyramids in Egypt becauseyou have seen a picture of them, but you will never get the feelingof being there. So, even if a great invention is there for anaffordable price, it will never replace the common experience if itis not genuine.

    The future has always been a topic that gave free rein to the imagination. This

    time UN forecasts on how the world will look like in the year 2100 are not toooptimistic, because the Earth will no longer dispose of some of its main resources,

    such as oil, natural gas or coal.

    The United Nations predicted that the Earth's population will reach about 10

    billion inhabitants in the year 2100, according to Business Insider. Everything

    until then, 80% of the world's population will live in cities. Mega-cities, which

    will have more than 20 million inhabitants, will become common. Of these, thefollowing are worth mentioning: Beijing, Delhi, Jakarta, Mexico City, Mumbai,

    So Paulo and Shanghai.

    Now, there are over 7,000 spoken languages, and in the future, many of them

    will disappear, while English will become the most used means of communication.

    Africa's population will grow from 1 billion as in 2010, up to 3.6 billion in2100. Life expectancy worldwide will reach 81 years, 68 as it is present, and

    22.3% of the population will be at least 65 years old.

    Resources such as oil, natural gas and coal will get close to zero. These

    energy sources are going to be extinct, mostly due to the rate of consumption. The

    exploitation of renewable energies (wind and solar energy in particular) will

    increase and they will become major sources in 2100.

    People spend more time in their homes than in any other space. The home ideally

    provides a safe, comfortable environment in which to relax, communicate, learn, and beentertained. Increasingly, it is where people connect with friends and family, conductbusiness, manage resources, learn about the world, and maintain health and autonomyas they age. People invest extraordinary amounts of time, money, and emotional energyto mold their homes into living spaces that meet their needs.

    Wood feels good, smells good, can look better with age, and has a lot goingfor it from the green point of view. It is sustainable (as long as it is harvested

    responsibly), healthful (it doesn't outgas toxins), and relatively durable (ifmaintained). Compared with other commonly used siding materials, it requires theleast energy to produce and involves the least total embodied energy over itslifetime. On top of that, wood potentially has the lowest environmental impact.When a house has come to the end of its useful life, the wood components maylive on in another structure the cradle-to-cradle scenario, as when oak barn beams

    live on capably in a second or even a third building.If we are to believe most movies, television, and popular press articles that

    mention home life in the future, we will have complete control over our spaces atthe touch of a button. In fact, our homes will be so fully automated and smartthat we will rarely have to think about everyday tasks at all. We will spend nearlyall our time in the home engaged in leisure activities because digital and roboticagents will have taken over the mundane chores of day-to-day life.

    In the future, homes and buildings will look differently, they will be

    suspended, and the cars will fly and will not have wheels. The cars will

    not pollute the air. The cities are going to be large, but unfortunately it

    will be no more lakes and forests. The cities will be equipped withappliances which refreshes the air. There will be cities-resorts where they

    will be forests, springs and lakes. The seasons will differ very little from

    each other.

    Some very exciting developments are underway in the realm of

    hydroponic agriculture, i.e. the growing of crops in fertilized waterwithout the use of soil. Grown in ultra clean, climate regulated

    environments inside warehouses or skyscrapers, crops could be spared

    both natural contamination (insects, infections etc) an d pesticides, to

    make them entirely clean, even more so than organic crops. Plants could

    be easily monitored for defects inside 30 story greenhouse that recycle alltheir air and water.

    It would also be possible to genetically enhance fruits, vegetables and

    even meat to have higher nutritional values with, for instance, less fat and

    more protein, by changing the DNA makeup.

    In vitro meat, in vitro fish, in vitro fowl. Science is all over it, and

    predictors say it will eventually sell for half the price of the real animal

    product. In vitro meat will taste and feel entirely genuine, and farms that

    raise, for instance, live stock will find profitability an elusive dream incompetition with modern sky farms. In vitro meat can be grown in urban

    multistory greenhouses. 20 years from now, I see urban dwellers buying

    fresh meat, fruits and vegetables from their neighborhood farm scraper, all

    devoid of infections, saturated fat and chemicals.

    Molecular gastronomy (also referred to as "progressive cuisine") uses

    avant-garde cooking techniques and equipment to transform flavors andpresentations. Examples include deconstructions, foams and "caviars"

    composed of reductions that have been converted via calcium baths into

    textural dollops with tapioca-like consistency.

    People are usually reassured by the chefsproclamation. Otherwise,before savoring the fake caviar made from sodium alginates, the burning

    sherbet, the artichoke foam delight in a siphon and the inverted Baked

    Alaska hot inside and cold outside, to understand the beauty of the new

    colloids in a complex disperse system and drink organized water, we

    would have been pressured to enroll for a semester of chemistry.

    What shape the school of the future will take is amorphous, but most

    educators and observers agree that the future school will go electronicwith a capital E.

    Students, TheAgeasserts, will see and hear teachers on computers,with "remote learning" the trend of tomorrow. Accessing "classrooms" ontheir home computers, students will learn at times most convenient forthem. Yet some attendance at an actual school will be required to help

    students develop appropriate social skills. That is why:- all teachers and students have laptop computers.

    - teachers check voicemail and return students' calls on a special telephonesystem.

    - students use telephones to find information or speak to experts in subjectareas they are studying.

    - all lessons are multidisciplinary.- all students have individual learning plans created by teachers.

    In schools, a laptop computer is the students' "library, homework, datastorage, and connection to the wider world. (Technology) has changed theemphasis to the learning of kids rather than the teaching of kids."

    21stCentury Schools recognizes the critical need for developing 21stcentury skills. However, we believe that authentic education addresses the

    whole child, the whole person, and does not limit our professional

    development and curriculum design to workplace readiness.

    21stcentury skills learned through our curriculum, which is

    interdisciplinary, integrated, project-based, and more, include and are

    learned within a project-based curriculum by utilizing the seven survival

    skills advocated by Tony Wagner in his book, The Global Achievement

    Gap:

    Critical Thinking and Problem Solving

    Collaboration across Networks and Leading by Influence

    Agility and Adaptability Initiative and Entrepreneurialism

    In much the same way that traveling at speeds close to the speed of light can alter the

    flow of time, intense gravitational fields can have the same effect. Gravity effectively

    is a warping of space-time,
