Top 10 strategic technologies impacting education

Top 10 strategic technologies impacting education | |

Social and economic pressures are forcing senior education leaders to rethink business models and consider a range of new technologies, to bring down the cost of administering education institutions and scale the business, according to research from Gartner, Inc.

According to Gartner VP and distinguished analyst Jan-Martin Lowendahl, traditional educational business models are being fundamentally challenged by digitalisation.

"An increasing number of technical innovations and technology trends are emerging from within the industry, but most will emerge outside the industry, driven by major forces such as digital business and the consumerisation and industrialisation of IT," said Lowendahl. "Education sector CIOs need to take a broad approach and consider technologies from outside the education community, as well as looking for lessons from their peers. Focus on those that are most appropriate to your institution's strategy."

The shift of the role of the teacher

The shift of the role of the teacher | |

We know today’s students will have to create their jobs, not look for jobs. They will compete with others around the globe. They will have jobs replaced by outsourcing and technology if their skills are easily replicated or duplicated.  To succeed, students will need creativity, communication, critical thinking, collaboration, and entrepreneurship.

They will need to be able to adapt to change, be resilient and able to work effectively in a variety of environments.

Are we in an an age of Collective Learning?

Are we in an an age of Collective Learning? | |

We are moving away from the model in which learning is organized around stable, usually hierarchical institutions (schools, colleges, universities) that, for better and worse, have served as the main gateways to education and social mobility. Replacing that model is a new system in which learning is best conceived of as a flow, where learning resources are not scarce but widely available, opportunities for learning are abundant, and learners increasingly have the ability to autonomously dip into and out of continuous learning flows.


Instead of worrying about how to distribute scarce educational resources, the challenge we need to start grappling with in the era of socialstructed learning is how to attract people to dip into the rapidly growing flow of learning resources and how to do this equitably, in order to create more opportunities for a better life for more people.  –Marina Gorbis

Why teachers must embrace disruptive technologies

Why teachers must embrace disruptive technologies | |

Affordable, accessible technologies can democratize opportunities for EVERYONE to become innovators and inventors. Countries can take advantage of this opportunity to create new jobs, new industry and skilled workers to achieve further economic growth and increase competitiveness. Also, preparing citizens with problem solving skills and entrepreneurial mindsets helps solve various social problems in the country.

Caveats: Students need to NOT be pressured into an economic mold—it destroys motivation , curiosity and love of learning (science shows that these are the basis for life-long mental resilience). People learn at their own pace and have individual processing modes. It is vital for our future to nurture instrinsic motivation in the next generation.

The 10 most important Business Skills in 2020

The 10 most important Business Skills in 2020 | |

In just six years time, the skills you'll be looking for in star employees will be vastly different from those ideal in today's workers. Consider this your crystal ball. 

In the near future, smart machines and systems will automate many jobs that exist today, changing the nature of skills that are in high demand.

As social technologies play a more important role in value creation, skills such as social intelligence and new media literacy, among others, will become increasingly important for workers. 

The infographic below from Top Ten Online Colleges shows which capabilities will be most valued by 2020:

Edumorfosis's insight:

Si la universidad no se articula a la altura de los tiempos practicando el conjunto de destrezas necesarias para entrar al mundo laboral emergente, lo harán los profesionales por su propia cuenta. Las micro-firmas se encargarán de desarrollar proyectos o programas dirigidos a profesionales en búsqueda de nuevos horizontes de posibilidades. La Universidad Intelectual ya es cosa del pasado. La Universidad Social es el presente y el futuro de la Hiper-Educación...

I agree with the essential skills list. Excellent!

LOL, rare is it I'm glad I have the Big C and so making 2020 is doubtful, but this infographic made me exhausted and glad I don't have to master all this stuff (lol).

5 things students expect from their teachers

5 things students expect from their teachers | |

Is there "a difference between a 'student' and a 'learner,' between a 'teacher' and an 'educator.'

Teachers want their students to be responsible and curious. They expect their students to follow class rules and do their homework. But what about the reverse? What do students want from their teachers?"


If we gave students a choice about which classes to attend each day, would they choose our subject? Would they view our pedagogical approach as worthwhile and interesting? A teacher’s job is not to be an entertainer, obviously. Gail Godwin’s quote, that “Teaching is one-fourth preparation and three-fourths theater,” holds true only on a certain level. But the role of the teacher is undoubtedly to engage each child and inspire interest.


The partnership between student and teacher relies on expectations. When these needs are met, they create decades of learning and admiration. When unmet, however, they foment years of delay and resentment.

I consider points two and three absolutely necessary! Points one, four and five are more difficult to maintain for six hours per day each day of the school year for all students.
