Most of these were familiar but there are one or two surprises. A useful list.

Ness Crouch's curator insight, August 24, 2013 2:29 PM

The term 'disruptive' may seem concerning but it is actually talking about change and the need for change to occur for progress to be made. Disruptive technologies in educaiton are those which challenge the norm and allow greating access to learning for students than technologies from the past.

The five start-ups listed are well funded and may be seriously on-fire within the year or two ahead.  

Time will tell, as the focus on lecture style and learning (competency building) and all the admin that goes with it begins to trade places.

10 Steps to a Successful School iPad Program

10 Steps to a Successful School iPad Program | RT's ICT | Scoop.it

iPads have certainly become a highly desired commodity in education. Apple is reporting that schools are purchasing iPads by a ratio of 2:1 over MacBooks. However, that rush to purchase the latest technologies often precedes the careful planning and preparation that’s crucial to their success as educational tools.

Stated simply, technology alone doesn’t have the capacity to improve education. It needs to be woven into a holistic approach to education that encompasses thorough planning and ongoing review of the skills and competencies required by the rapidly changing society that characterizes life in the 21st century.

Pamela D Lloyd's curator insight, March 23, 2013 6:02 PM

As a writer, I find this set of predictions both interesting and, well, less than overwhelming. I'd like to see more creativity, especially with regard to the "least likely" possibilities, and less focus on tech companies. I'm more interested in thinking about what life might be like, than in which social media giant is on top. What predictions do you have, and what do you think are the odds for or against?

Ness Crouch's curator insight, April 19, 2013 2:11 PM
