What Does Future-ready Social Studies Education Look Like? Insights from Teaching and Learning Geography

Chang, Chew-Hung
The aspirations for social studies education that would prepare our learners for a sustainable future are presented in this paper. Given the complex, ambiguous and volatile times that we are in, there is a need to examine the key capabilities that our students will require in order to flourish in a future world. This cannot be done without consideration for sustainability. This paper will provide an overview of the current realities and attempt to articulate the knowledge, skills and dispositions of a future-ready student with a view to designing good social-studies education. A specific case in teaching and learning of the climate change topic is argued for students to learn to know, to do, to be and to live together.
