Nick Westerberg's insight:

(Aspect 3) This article focuses on the connectivity with the children.  It talks about how teachers must connect to the kids to have a stable relationship with them, which makes the class run easier for both student and teacher.  It mostly discusses racial issues, which I feel wouldn't be such an issue, if any at all.  It goes on to talk about how the teacher and student can find ways to make class easier for one another.

21 Things That Will Become Obsolete in Education by 2020 - THE DAILY RIFF - Be Smarter. About Education.

21 Things That Will Become Obsolete in Education by 2020 - THE DAILY RIFF - Be Smarter. About Education. | Teaching Techniques | Scoop.it


"Within the decade, it will either become the norm to teach this course 
(high school Algebra I) in middle school or 
we'll have finally woken up to the fact that there's no reason to give algebra 
weight over statistics and IT in high school for non-math majors 
(and they will have all taken it in middle school anyway)."

21 Things That Will Become Obsolete in Education by 2020


by Shelley Blake-Plock

Last night I read and posted the clip on "21 Things That Became Obsolete in the Last Decade." Well, just for kicks, I put together my own list of "21 Things That Will Become Obsolete in Education by 2020."

1. Desks
The 21st century does not fit neatly into rows. Neither should your students. Allow the network-based concepts of flow, collaboration, and dynamism help you rearrange your room for authentic 21st century learning.

2. Language Labs
Foreign language acquisition is only a smartphone away. Get rid of those clunky desktops and monitors and do something fun with that room.

3. Computers
Ok, so this is a trick answer. More precisely this one should read: 'Our concept of what a computer is'. Because computing is going mobile and over the next decade we're going to see the full fury of individualized computing via handhelds come to the fore. Can't wait.

4. Homework
The 21st century is a 24/7 environment. And the next decade is going to see the traditional temporal boundaries between home and school disappear. And despite whatever Secretary Duncan might say, we don't need kids to 'go to school' more; we need them to 'learn' more. And this will be done 24/7 and on the move (see #3).

5. The Role of Standardized Tests in College Admissions
The AP Exam is on its last legs. The SAT isn't far behind. Over the next ten years, we will see Digital Portfolios replace test scores as the #1 factor in college admissions.

6. Differentiated Instruction as the Sign of a Distinguished Teacher
The 21st century is customizable. In ten years, the teacher who hasn't yet figured out how to use tech to personalize learning will be the teacher out of a job. Differentiation won't make you 'distinguished'; it'll just be a natural part of your work.

7. Fear of Wikipedia
Wikipedia is the greatest democratizing force in the world right now. If you are afraid of letting your students peruse it, it's time you get over yourself.

8. Paperbacks
Books were nice. In ten years' time, all reading will be via digital means. And yes, I know, you like the 'feel' of paper. Well, in ten years' time you'll hardly tell the difference as 'paper' itself becomes digitized.

9. Attendance Offices
Bio scans. 'Nuff said.

10. Lockers
A coat-check, maybe.

11. IT Departments
Ok, so this is another trick answer. More subtly put: IT Departments as we currently know them. Cloud computing and a decade's worth of increased wifi and satellite access will make some of the traditional roles of IT -- software, security, and connectivity -- a thing of the past. What will IT professionals do with all their free time? Innovate. Look to tech departments to instigate real change in the function of schools over the next twenty years.

12. Centralized Institutions
School buildings are going to become 'homebases' of learning, not the institutions where all learning happens. Buildings will get smaller and greener, student and teacher schedules will change to allow less people on campus at any one time, and more teachers and students will be going out into their communities to engage in experiential learning.

13. Organization of Educational Services by Grade
Education over the next ten years will become more individualized, leaving the bulk of grade-based learning in the past. Students will form peer groups by interest and these interest groups will petition for specialized learning. The structure of K-12 will be fundamentally altered.

14. Education School Classes that Fail to Integrate Social Technology
This is actually one that could occur over the next five years. Education Schools have to realize that if they are to remain relevant, they are going to have to demand that 21st century tech integration be modeled by the very professors who are supposed to be preparing our teachers.
(Ed. Note:  Check out Plock's 2010 nomination for best blog post:  "Why Teachers Should Blog") 

15. Paid/Outsourced Professional Development
No one knows your school as well as you. With the power of a PLN in their backpockets, teachers will rise up to replace peripatetic professional development gurus as the source of schoolwide prof dev programs. This is already happening.

16. Current Curricular Norms
There is no reason why every student needs to take however many credits in the same course of study as every other student. The root of curricular change will be the shift in middle schools to a role as foundational content providers and high schools as places for specialized learning.

17. Parent-Teacher Conference Night
Ongoing parent-teacher relations in virtual reality will make parent-teacher conference nights seem quaint. Over the next ten years, parents and teachers will become closer than ever as a result of virtual communication opportunities. And parents will drive schools to become ever more tech integrated.

18. Typical Cafeteria Food
Nutrition information + handhelds + cost comparison = the end of $3.00 bowls of microwaved mac and cheese. At least, I so hope so.

19. Outsourced Graphic Design and Webmastering
You need a website/brochure/promo/etc.? Well, for goodness sake just let your kids do it. By the end of the decade -- in the best of schools -- they will be.

20. High School Algebra I
Within the decade, it will either become the norm to teach this course in middle school or we'll have finally woken up to the fact that there's no reason to give algebra weight over statistics and IT in high school for non-math majors (and they will have all taken it in middle school anyway).

21. Paper
In ten years' time, schools will decrease their paper consumption by no less than 90%. And the printing industry and the copier industry and the paper industry itself will either adjust or perish.

Rog Rothe's curator insight, July 30, 2015 12:42 AM

This is a really cool take on how limited we are as educators in helping students with hearing difficulties.   I scooped it so that it will help raise awareness for these students, and I hope that someday I can learn sign language to be a more impactful instructor. 

KaylaHeinlein's curator insight, October 25, 2015 10:17 AM

I chose this because I feel many students with special needs are falling through the cracks.  As teachers we need to make sure we are doing everything we can to support these students. 

Samantha Abrego's curator insight, December 8, 2015 4:41 PM

This video explores the disconnect in teaching students with hearing impairments and deaf student. One might think that because text is visual, therefore it may not come with as many difficulties. However there are several struggles. Firstly, deaf and hearing impairments are English language learners. Their primary language is sign language.  It has its own unique grammar and syntax. Such as with other ESL students, it can be difficult to interpret high level English. Reading for deaf students have difficulty with jargon and implied meaning. If a student was born with the impairment they have never heard inflection. Signers also have difficulty taking notes. Hearing individuals can listen and write at the same time. If a deaf student looks down they miss large chunks of the lectures.
