Note: Education Futures is on winter break and will return on January 7.

2007 has been a banner year for Education Futures, with expansions in the range of content and participation. First and foremost, I would like to thank the guest bloggers and other contributors that shared their thoughts and expertise this year: Cristóbal Cobo described the need for adaptive learners in the future of education; Brock Dubbels discussed games in the classroom; Arthur Harkins shared his thoughts on leapfrogging; Jayson Richardson explored the role of ICT for development; and, Jeffrey Schulz reflected on his experiences as a virtual teacher. More guest bloggers will join in 2008, starting with Ai Takeuchi, who will provide futures-oriented perspectives on educational innovations from Japan.
