Towards the next 21 years of Research in Mathematics Education
Marking 21 years of the journal Research in Mathematics Education, this editorial looks forward and considers possible future developments over the next 21 years. One source of thinking about the future is to look at past trends and gaps that points to the need for further research on mathematics education in early years schooling, in adult education, and with students with special educational needs and disabilities, plus ways to continue innovation in research, ways to scale-up small-scale empirical research, and ways to better support practitioner-research and the dissemination of research to teachers in various professional settings. Another source is more speculative and links, for the journal editors, to an increasingly urgent sense that mathematics education needs to take account of a world that is facing unprecedented crises of climate, ecology, migration and more. Change seems inevitable and the journal editors would like to encourage debate and research in mathematics education that helps thinking about a future that is not what it was.

Abstract

Marking 21 years of the journal Research in Mathematics Education, this editorial looks forward and considers possible future developments over the next 21 years. One source of thinking about the future is to look at past trends and gaps that points to the need for further research on mathematics education in early years schooling, in adult education, and with students with special educational needs and disabilities, plus ways to continue innovation in research, ways to scale-up small-scale empirical research, and ways to better support practitioner-research and the dissemination of research to teachers in various professional settings. Another source is more speculative and links, for the journal editors, to an increasingly urgent sense that mathematics education needs to take account of a world that is facing unprecedented crises of climate, ecology, migration and more. Change seems inevitable and the journal editors would like to encourage debate and research in mathematics education that helps thinking about a future that is not what it was.
