  • We know what technology holds for the future
  • Predictions about the future can be risky and embarrassing. And bad for business.
  • We can’t seem to help it, though.
  • Predictions about the future of education are less risky. The teacher (expert) delivers the content to the receptive studentStudents learn the same material at the same paceThey learn on a structured schedule of semesters or quarters, and the content they need fills up these periodsStudents indicate their understanding of the content by taking testsWhen they have mastered the content, they receive some kind of official acknowledgement—a grade, a certificate, a degree.

Despite the Horizon predictions, you have to wonder if these new technologies will only be laid over our current model of ed:The teacher (expert) delivers the content to the receptive studentStudents learn the same material at the same paceStudents learn on a structured schedule of semesters or quarters, and the content they need fills up these periodsStudents indicate their understanding of the content by taking a test on the contentWhen they have mastered the content, they receive some kind of official acknowledgement—a grade, a certificate, a degree.
  • So, since it has been this way for so long, maybe education doesn’t really need to fundamentally change. It has gotten everything right.
  • Who will step in to fill the need? InnovatorsWe may not know what the future holds, but education, particularly postsecondary, has never been at greater risk of being disrupted like other industries: Newspaper Music Entertainment
  • How did this happen? Technology is to blame. It has changed the context of learning, like it has changed the context of working, entertainment, many other aspects of our lives. What we learn: Connectivism How we learn: digital toolsWho we learn with: anyone, anywhere Where &amp; whenlearning happens: anywhere, anytimeWhen we’ve built all of these buildings, hired these people, etc.
  • Technology is the answer not because of online coursesNot because of lecture captureNot because of the iPadDistance Learning is often the same kind of learning, repackaged. All of these are positive steps, but baby steps
  • Technology is the answer because it gives us the tools we need to reinvent, or remix, teaching and learning—taking the things that work, throwing away what doesn’t, making something newIt’s an exciting prospect, but a difficult one, tooSo how do we remix teaching &amp; learning?
