There are common threads in their ­predictions: widely available videos as educational tools, the blending of the physical and digital worlds, and a web that's capable of applying context to its processes. Many of these advancements aren't new, but they're becoming increasingly ubiquitous and far-reaching, transforming existing processes and offering new insights into everything from health to marketing to learning.

Teen Takes Educators to Twitter School | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it
Fifteen-year-old Adora Svitak knows students nowadays “live, work and play” social media.

“We’re used to the characteristics of social media: participation, connection, instant gratification,” she tells Mashable, “and when school doesn’t offer the same, it’s easy to tune out.”

To help more educators learn about the benefits of using social media in the classroom, Adora recently taught nearly 3,000 teachers, principals and administrators how to implement Twitter and Facebook into their lives.

Universities and Social Media

Universities and Social Media | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it
It seems unfathomable to me that a modern progressive university would not look at social media and say here is the most fabulous set of tools for helping us carry out some of our core tasks. Such universities should be saying to the faculty, why aren’t you blogging, tweeting etc your thoughts and ideas as privileged members of the academy? Not, why are you?

University of the Future - Report

Ernst & Young’s view is that the higher education sector is
undergoing a fundamental transformation in terms of its role
in society, mode of operation, and economic structure and
value. To explore these themes and future directions, we have
conducted an industry-wide study of the main forces impacting
the higher education industry globally and locally, and the
opportunities, challenges and implications for Australian
universities. 
Our primary hypothesis is that the dominant university model
in Australia — a broad-based teaching and research institution,
supported by a large asset base and a large, predominantly
in-house back office — will prove unviable in all but a few cases
over the next 10-15 years.
