Sahoon Kim


There are many predictions of how education will change in the future. In particular, the impact of technological and social change will make schools look different than they are today. Schools are expected to perform various functions in the future, and their forms and functions will differ from those of today. This study is mainly composed of two research contents. The first is about the school culture that teachers consider important in the future school, and the second is about the teaching-learning method suitable for the future. In this study, a survey was conducted on 81 elementary school teachers from February to April 2022. Data collection was conducted online. A total of 73 data were analyzed, excluding data judged to be insincere among respondents. The results are as follow. First, the most important thing for teachers to recognize is to operate a competency-oriented curriculum and set educational goals suitable for the future society. In addition, the most important teaching and learning methods of future schools recognized by teachers were student-student interaction, discussion-centered classes, and student-centered classes. Meanwhile, according to teachers, education using smart devices showed relatively low importance compared to other questions. Since this result is limited to elementary school students, it is necessary to interpret it carefully.
