36 Future Forwards: Exploring Frontiers in Education
our models and constructs are built to meet real needs and to promote the highest quality learning
possible. They are also built with the expectation that they will continue to be developed. This work is
not perfect in the sense that it is still going to require ongoing development, rather is designed to help
us meet the needs of educators for the future. That was and is our goal. In the end, it is our hope that
we have been able to lay a foundation upon which any organization can build, test, and mold its own
future as well.
