Glimpse of the Future
Anna Craft research interest was primarily in the future of education and learning. As we moved into the computer age, Craft recognized that there were opportunities to create new approaches to learning. She explored the way youth’s childhood was changing and the potential need to change the way we might need to change our education system. Transforming our education system was a top priority and focusing educational design on imaginative education futures. Craft’s research was exceptionally interesting to me because of my passion to make a change to our educational system in the Virgin Islands. I would love to create Craft’s vision for an education system where learning occurs naturally as play on the playground. Her writing is very inspirational as to the possibilities of “fostering imagination and creativity in all aspects of children’s learning.” Craft’s dedication and commitment to the work in the field of creativity in all aspects of children’s learning is beyond commendable.
