Abstract

In the traditional approach of education, the roles of active teacher, passive student, and passive
parents are dominant. As a result of philosophical changes, scientific and technological
developments, the traditional understanding of education went through the changes. This change has
continued to accelerate after the Covid-19 pandemic. In order to adapt to this change in education
and to reduce conflict, it may be useful to predict the future from today. In this context, the research
aims to examine the role of teachers, students, and parents in the education of the future from the
perspective of teachers. In the direction of this purpose, the study was conducted with a
phenomenological design, one of the qualitative research designs. The study group of the research
consisted of 12 teachers working in secondary schools affiliated to the Ministry of National
Education in the fall semester of 2021-2022. The study data were collected with a semi-structured
interview form prepared by the researchers. The obtained data were analyzed by the descriptive
analysis method. In the research findings, the future role of the teacher was explained by three
different codes as counselor personality, motivator, and loss of status. The student's role was
explained as an active student, socializing student, and a student who lacks practice. The role of the
parents in the education of the future was explained with two codes as the main element of education
and counselor. Based on the study results, it can be suggested that teacher training programs should
be organized and updated in a way that will raise the human type of the future in the best way, and
in-service training should be organized for teachers. For students, it can be suggested to focus on
activities that will provide socialization opportunities due to the increase in the ease of accessing
information for students and the intensity of distance education. For parents, it can be recommended
to provide education at various levels so that they can be included in the education without any
problems and fulfill their increasing responsibilities.
