Well... one of the educational trends this year is the micro-learning... already exists Coursmos, the first micro-learning platform... I think it is one of the most promising directions in the education revolution in the near future.

Melanie Ferreira's curator insight, January 1, 11:56 PM

There is no doubt that technology plays a major role on how our schools will embrace the future, with many lessons to learn along the way.  Understanding what the future holds, what will work in a South African context and where to start are some of the key factors that needs bearing in mind.

Trey Wright's curator insight, January 2, 2:40 PM

These trends will surely continue to stay on the rise, with improving the ease, access and experience for student learning.

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.

Information Literacy Weblog: MOOCs, Information Literacy and the role of the librarian (slides) | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it

On Monday I gave a talk on MOOCs, Information Literacy and the role of the librarian at Edinburgh university on. The abstract for this was "Sheila Webber will start by briefly outlining some general characteristics of MOOCs and her own experience with them. She will go on to identify types of MOOC and the implications for MOOC pedagogy. As part of this discussion she will note some findings from an investigation into the value of learning analytics for MOOC educators (undertaken by Naomi Colhoun at Sheffield University in summer 2014). In the final part of her presentation she will reflect on the various roles that have been, or could be, adopted by librarians."
