This session from the WorldFuture 2013 conference explores a vision of the future that moves education beyond the boundaries of the classroom, both physical and digital. By examining trends in locative media, education, social technology, analytics, and implications of the coming “Big Data” era, we show how the future of learning may very well be one that is both ubiquitous and personalized.
In "Everywhere Education," school—or what we think of as formalized K-12 education and higher education—leaves the bounds of both the brick-and-mortar classroom and of cyber education. Many glimpses of the future of education seem to take education down the road of cyber education. One possible future is one in which education is not really bound by a classroom or a computer, but is ubiquitous in nature, unfolding in the real world as educational opportunities present themselves to the student, rather than only taking place during class time, or when the learner is logged into a computer for class.
Rather than discrete, bounded activities, learning and personal growth become continuous, guided practices meaningfully integrated into the experience of real life and the real world.
