This teaching module combines IBM Smarter Planet Initiative materials and website with basic foresight skills in such a way as to fit into a broad range of courses in business, engineering and the social sciences. The basic foresight skills involve understanding trends, a systems approach and the articulation of a preferred future. Combining these skills with IBM's extensive online library and interactive serious game provides the structure for a stand‐alone module, or with sufficient elaboration, could provide the framework for an entire course.
