Not necessarily because they are good things, or that they are evidenced, or even that anyone really wants them to.
They just will. Largely due to pressure of budgets. And inertia.
Of course, some of these things already happen to a greater of lesser extent in different phases. What I see is that they will become more mainstream. The rule, rather than the exception.
- The single stand-alone school will become the exception rather than the rule.
- School vouchers (ring-fenced to state-provision) will arrive.
- Pay levels will be determined at a regional/local level.
- Pay levels will differ by subject.
- Teaching Assistants will become Assistant Teachers who take classes, supervised by a QTS teacher.
- Some specialist provision will be delivered by remote teachers.
- Schools will buy in provision for specific elements of the curriculum rather than employing full-time specialists.
- Schools will place curriculum materials online, encouraging further sharing within departments.
- Curriculum resources will become a shared development between schools.
- Entire curriculums will be commercially available online and their use will become the norm.
- Marking will be more and more automated.
- End of course assessment will be online.
- Students will use digital devices in lessons
- Schools will teach keyboard skills as much as they teach cursive handwriting.
- There will be a greater use of blended learning models, particularly post-sixteen.
- Home learning linked to school models will develop.
Tell me I’m wrong.
