Beyond the Textbook

Beyond the Textbook | Education3.0 | Scoop.it

nce the textbook publisher controlled expertise, with the teacher as its agent in the classroom. Clearly that no longer need be the case. Expertise has been distributed, thank you Internet. Experts are everywhere. Knowledge is networked, as are learners.

Schools are full of obsolete things: cassette players, Soviet-era political maps, curricula that treat technology as auxiliary to content, the idea that technology will save education (as opposed to the idea that relevance will).


In 2009, educator Shelly Blake-Plock identified 21 things that would be obsolete by 2020. Technology’s evolution may hasten the demise of some, but it also will empower students in ways yet to be seen.
