The purpose of this article is to share 4 scenarios for the future.

Rather than proposing one vision for the future, putting all of our eggs in one basket as it were, we suggest four scenarios for the future of D&T. To do this, we take into account two key tensions:

1. What is taught in D&T –established technologies (3D printing, laser cutting, using sewing machines and hand tools) or emerging technologies.

2. Who D&T is available to –all pupils or only some.

These technological and democratic tensions provide for four future scenarios.
