I like this article for the way it states the obvious - Continued focus on rigorous goals, use of technology to enhance learning, and preparing students to be not just college ready, but career ready are some of the goals that I feel are in sync with our aspirations for K-12 Education in 2014. Yes, and I very strongly believe that 2015 will be about promoting the concept of BYOD, especially in the form of Tablet P.Cs. The Akash tablet manufactured by Ubislat was once introduced in some of the Government schools in India, it was ahead its times! According to this article, 2015 will also about investing in the person, the teacher who personalises the process of teaching!
