If current LMS designs are tied to a teaching and learning model that is being replaced with new approaches, then what should come next? Because the successor to the LMS needs to support a very different model of learning, it seems unlikely that we can get there by updating the current LMS with incremental improvements

Yes. The current LMS model seems to be based upon the 'tech as homework' model of blended learning, whereas nowadays the blend is happening in the classroom and even in the environment.

Why banning technology is not the answer

Our aim should be to build learning environments which are highly engaging, relevant and valued by all involved, if the learning is only relevant to the teacher then perhaps it should be changed or its significance to the students made clear. Understanding how our connected devices bring new opportunities to make connections beyond the four walls of our classrooms is an essential understanding to be developed. Effective teachers will show their students the power that such connections offer and encourage students to make full use of all of the tools at their disposal.

Blended Learning and Student Agency 

Blended Learning and Student Agency  | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Student agency is one of the reasons why next gen learning looks and feels different from traditional instructional practices.

Despite the best of intentions, whole group instruction that is teacher-centered or curriculum-centered tends to ignore the agency of individual students to own their learning and direct their own path through it. When student agency is embraced, the instructional model shifts to a student-centered learning model.

I agree with the author. i think that in the future people will not have to check the spelling of their words anymore as they can use grammar checks such as spelling bee. students or adults can benefit from it as this grammar check can prevent them from making such mistakes so that their assignments or project work are without mistakes in spelling.  people can understand what u type if u type it wrongly as well.

TED Ed is one of our favourite video resources we have been recommending for teachers over the last few years. It features short video explanations (usually less than 5 minutes long) covering different educational topics. The clips are professionally animated using a wide range of visual illustrations to hook in the viewers and keep them engaged. We have already shared some very good TED Ed videos on Math, writing, and several other subject areas. In today’s post we want to highlight some challenging TED Ed riddles to share with your students. These are short brain teasers to engage your students in problem solving activities in which they have to make use of different learning skills to solve the riddles. Here is the list:

9 educational technology trends that will rule in 2016 | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it

"Nowadays, technology has changed the world, be it the technology in education or technology in any sector of the economy. It surely has changed the global platform. You can stay connected to each other, whether you are near or far away. Technology has enhanced the social media impacts on our lives. It looks so hard to imagine life without technology, there is no charm in life without technology, so by summing up it becomes the essential part of our life and need of the world as well."

In the article, “9 educational technology trends that will rule in 2016” it talks about the different technologies that we will see being used in 2016. Technology continues to be enhanced at a rapid pace and it has become a habit to use in our daily lives. In schools, technology is becoming advanced and it is being used in classrooms in different ways. Some private schools are using smart boards and students are required to have their own iPad or tablet. If schools are requiring to use iPad or tablets then they use apps for books and learning activities. It will be interesting to see how technology advances in schools. I know that technology will have an even more impact in our lives in the future than it does now. Schools are trying to get different exciting ways to help students learn in a fun hands on way. I hope technology doesn't advance too much in the future that it takes over actual teachers. It was informative and interesting reading the nine different ways that technology will be used in education in 2016.
