Abstract
The purpose of this study is to explore the situation of entrepreneurship education and future technology in school education in Oman. The population of the study is all 1166 Omani schools. The study was carried out on a sample of 7 schools from 3 governorates which covers school principals, information technology teachers, vocational guidance specialists and activities' officers. To achieve the purposes of this study, A list of 25 texts on technologies of the future which can be used in teaching and are directly related to entrepreneurship education was compiled. Based on the list, interviews were conducted on focus groups of the study sample to explore the situation of entrepreneurship education and future technology on the schools. Additionally, the respondents of each school were asked to fill in a questionnaire based on the existing future technology for each school. Results indicate that only 28% of target future technologies are evident in the curriculum of Information Technology for grade 5-11 both in theory and practice. Additionally, school principals, vocational guidance specialists and activities' officers lack any plans or methods in future technology. It is recommended that the Ministry of Education in Oman establish a clear vision to include Entrepreneurship Education into the curriculum of Information Technology in schools and elevate the curriculum and school activities to the global trend of future technology.
