SCHOOL OF SKILLS OF THE FUTURE. STAGE 2. PREPARATION OF PARTICIPANTS

The school was mandatory for the winners of the competition, invited to the forum to participate in the project further. So, in January 2024, the 2nd stage of the School of Future Skills took place - the training of forum participants. The entire school was held entirely online under the guidance of the organizers and tutors who went through the school of tutors.

Before the start of the School, a webinar was held in Russian and English, where the participants got acquainted with the organizing group and tutors of their teams. Also, frequently asked questions from participants were previously collected, which the organizers answered during the webinar. Participants were able to freely ask any question about the School and the project as a whole.

All sessions were held on the Google Classrooms platform. Video lectures were posted on the YouTube platform, and then integrated into Classrooms, where assignments for each of the topics were also published. Each session was open according to the program, and participants could watch lectures and complete tasks in their free time (within the set deadline).

The school program included a total of 10 sessions, in which the participants, who had previously reviewed the material and completed the task, took part in discussions with tutors in an online format .

Experts also took part in the discussion of lecture topics and interdisciplinary areas. These trainings were aimed at developing a scientific work that will be presented at the international forum "SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT BY 2100: FORECASTS, VISIONS, SCENARIOS AND PLANS. Each session lasted about 2 hours of face-to-face work on Zoom and 2 hours of self-study.

Following the results of the thematic sessions, a 2-day foresight was held with moderator Alexander Alexandrovich Chulok. The foresight session was aimed at developing foresight skills – brainstorming by participants who had already prepared projects as part of teams by the beginning of the session.

At the foresight session, the participants in teams identified various trends in the social, scientific, technological, environmental and other spheres, identified a set of actions necessary to counter threats and take advantage of the opportunities created by trends, and made a final presentation with the results obtained. It was during the final session that the participants were able to present their projects, work out the knowledge gained during the School and prepare materials that were presented at the Forum in February 2024.

During the school, tutors kept the participants motivated, planned their own schedule of discussion sessions within the teams, and could gather online at any time convenient for everyone. At the discussion session, participants could share their opinions about the video lecture, ideas, impressions and ask any organizational questions. Tutors recorded the degree of participation of each participant in their team and monitored the completion of the task in Google Classroom.

RESULTS

A total of 72 people took part in the school. 58 participants worked at the School of Future Skills in Russian, 14 participants in English. Participants were from 11 countries from around the world, including Russia, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Belarus, India, China, Trinidad and Tobago, Zambia, Turkey, and Jordan. 8 teams were formed, which included 1 tutor and from 6 to 14 participants, united by direction.

At the same time, the School was held in Ecuador, where, after receiving scientific and science fiction works-winners, 7 teams were formed, which included teachers-tutors, youth tutors and winners of Latin America. As a result, 41 people took part.

The School of Future Skills allowed the participants not only to gain new knowledge and foresight skills, but also to understand that futurology is a complex science in which it is necessary to take into account a variety of areas of human activity, risks and opportunities. And having learned all the subtleties of this craft, at the end of the training, all of them can safely call themselves futurologists!
