Abstract/Summary This chapter argues that while there have been some notable achievements incorporating aspects of applications and modelling into educational programmes, this is no cause for complacency. In addition to making current knowledge and initiatives available to a wider spectrum of the educational community, future advancement requires that new questions be posed, existing conceptualisations deepened, and dilemmas identified and addressed. The chapter samples a selection of issues, some ongoing, some emerging that are illustrative of these challenges.
