Future Ready Schools

Future Ready Schools | Future of education | Scoop.it
Future Ready Schools is a free, bold effort to maximize digital learning opportunities and help school districts move quickly toward preparing students for success in college, a career, and citizenship. This effort comes at a critical time as districts embrace college and career readiness as the goal for all students and recognize the potential of digital tools to help teachers personalize learning for each student. While less than 30 percent of U.S. schools have the bandwidth they need to teach using today’s technology, federal and state efforts are expanding this capacity to ensure that at least 99 percent of the nation’s students have access to high-speed internet in their schools within the next five years. Such connectivity, along with strategic planning by districts to maximize its availability, has the potential to transform the educational experiences of all students, regardless of their background. 
District leaders must respond to these changes with thoughtful planning to align necessary technologies with instructional goals to support teaching and learning. The effort provides districts with resources and support to ensure that local technology and digital learning plans align with instructional best practices, are implemented by highly trained teachers, and lead to personalized learning experiences for all students, particularly those from traditionally under-served communities. The Alliance for Excellent Education and the U.S. Department of Education are leading this effort alongside a vast coalition of national organizations. Future Ready Schools can be found at www.futurereadyschools.org. Districts can download the Future Ready Schools fact sheet here.

Today, most educational systems are designed to work from the microscopic to the macroscopic. Students learn facts and figures and tiny fractions of knowledge long before anyone really puts things into a larger context.

Future schools: Books to be replaced by online learning by 2030, global survey predicts

Future schools: Books to be replaced by online learning by 2030, global survey predicts | Future of education | Scoop.it
BOOKS will be a distant memory, social skills will trump academic knowledge, teachers will be guides rather than lecturers and set hours at school will be a thing of the past.

And schools/college buildings may not be needed in the future as well?

Leonard Waks's curator insight, December 9, 2014 7:30 PM

Predictions from the World Innovation Summit for Education’s global survey: books and teachers will sharply decline in importance.


"Only a third (of those surveyed) said school buildings would be the primary source of knowledge and within those walls three quarters said the role of teachers would shift from lecturing to guiding students along their own learning paths." 


This is the same idea advanced in my book Education 2.0. Except that I expect these changes long before 2030.
