Institutions of learning adapt and change over time. The emergence of certain technologies, social behaviors, cultural expectations, and political and economic pressures influence what institutions do and what they look like. We live at a time when education features prominently in the global press and discussions focusing on improving the ways we design education are a daily occurrence. A central tenet of this discussion is the notion that technology is transforming education. Yet, the assumption that technology changes education often goes unchallenged. In this talk, I will highlight how learning and education are and are not changing as we are faced with new ideas about learning, increased (market-driven) interest in education, decreased state funding for education, and cultures of participation and sharing. Together, we will explore the research on online learning, the opportunities that exist for meaningful change, and the future educational systems that we are creating.
