    • © Project Tomorrow 2010 A vision for education in 2019 “ School will become a 24 hour around the clock opportunity with students logging into school from “home.” The role of the teacher will be to lead and assist students in “discovering” the uses for the technology and information. Every student from Pre-K through twelfth grade will have access to learning through the most advanced IT devices available. Learning will occur online at least 80% of the time. School buildings will be open on evenings and Saturdays for remediation, recreation and community activities for the purpose of socialization.” Principal from Michigan
