So you're a Google guru or a search siren... I bet you still don't know every last trick and tool in Google's array of services. But whether you're a newbie or expert, the following infographic may very well be worth printing out and posting in your office or teacher's lounge.
What will classrooms look like in the year 2040? What will be the biggest and most popular teaching tools? A dazzling (but potentially controversial) visualization maps out what's coming to education in the future.
This interesting table, comparing 20th and 21st Century learning, was conceived by William Rankin, a well credentialed doctor of Education from ACU, Texas.
This graphic, which I found on Educational Technology and Mobile Learning, was originally published on iThinkEd in 2007, where you can read Rankin’s full thoughts that led to his creation of this table.
What’s fascinating for me is the fact this was written 7 years ago. It doesn’t date the message. It challenges us as educators to reflect on how far we have actually progressed.
I started hearing the talk about 21st Century Learning back in the 90s and here we are in 2013 and, looking at this chart from Rankin, we have to ask ourselves; for all the talk and planning, have we really moved out of the 20th Century and embraced what this nebulous concept of 21st Century is really about?
This article has multiple issues. Please help improve it or discuss these issues on the talk page . Education 3.0 describes a level of transformative capabilities and practices for education in the 21st century. The work of Prof. James G.
Education 3.0 is a term that has been used to describe a level of transformative capabilities and practices for education in the 21st century.
Professor Derek Keats, of the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa, and his co-author Jan Philipp Schmidt, FreeCourseWare Manager at University of the Western Cape, South Africa, used the term in 2007 to apply to the use and impact on education of collaborative and personalized learning, reusable learning content, and recognition of prior learning (RPL) whether by formal or informal means.
Keats' explorations were focused on higher education. Dr. John Moravec at the University of Minnesota broadens this view, and describes Education 3.0 as a product necessary to support what he labels "Society 3.0" - a near future paradigm of social co-constructivism, ambient technology, and propelled by continuous innovation at all levels of society.

The Internet has changed the modern Education tremendously and with the growing and increasing users daily, its becoming difficult to look out for nice colleges and study and therefore many choose to study online. While we have also shown how in reality the Education cost has grown up in recent time making it almost impossible for everyone to grasp better education.
"Over the last month I've facilitated a handful of workshops on the topic of video creation in the classroom. One of the points that I always try to stress in those workshops is that the focus of most student video projects should be on developing and delivering clear story lines. Yes, it is great if students use slick transitions and special effects, but those don't mean a thing if the video doesn't have a clear purpose (unless that purpose is to demonstrate editing skills)."
Have you heard of Project RED (hint - RED stands for revolutionizing education)? They have "conducted a national survey of educational technology that focused on student achievement and financial implications."
There are seven key findings. These are listed below and additional information on each is in the post.
1. Nine key implementation factors [that] are linked most strongly to education success.
2. Properly implemented technology saves money.
3. 1:1 schools employing key implementation factors outperform all schools and all other 1:1 schools.
4. The principal's ability to lead change is critical. Change must be modeled and championed at the principal level.
Is the one-size-fits-all, top-down classroom a misfit for the Digital Age?
Standards-based education is ruining the way educators teach and children learn. Education should not be about teaching to the next level in education and vocation and yet, that is exactly what our current school system is designed to do.
Our goal should be to foster a love of learning for learning sake. Learning is not something that we should force onto our children to ensure they go to college and get a good job. True learning is intrinsically motivated and the reward is knowledge.
